This tornado developed west-southwest of the intersection of Fishmarket Road and Memorial Road to the south-southwest of

The tornado moved east-northeast where a telephone company building lost its roof, and a number of sheds were damaged and causing tree damage as it crossed the intersection and Fishmarket and Memorial Roads. Extensive tree damage continued northeast of this intersection, at least one home suffered the destruction of an attached garage and a few homes suffered roof and window damage. The tornado turned north-northeast crossing U.S. Interstate 40 near the Walker Road bridge where it struck and semi truck, lifting and destroying the trailer, lofting the pieces to the north, and injuring the truck driver. The tornado dissipated soon after crossing Interstate 40. Although the tornado was very narrow, the rotational velocity of the tornado was observed to be very strong. Monetary damage estimates were not available.
