A tornado touched down along Werner Road, about 3/4 mile west of the intersection with Farmingdale Road. A few pine trees were broken off in this area, and a home lost some shingles. The tornado tracked across mainly open fields and crossed I-72 just east of Farmingdale Road at 7:45 pm. It tracked northeast and damaged a house along Bunker Hill Road, blowing out a few windows, removing some shingles, and breaking several trees. It continued across open fields and caused some minor shingle damage to a home along Emerson Road about a quarter mile south of Iles Avenue, and also uprooted and snapped a few trees. Continuing northeast, it caused significant damage to a home along Iles Avenue, about 0.5 mile east of the intersection with Emerson Road, removing most of the roof and blowing out a wall on the west side of the building. The strongest part of the tornado (wind speeds 100-105 mph) occurred at this location. Across the street, a barn lost its roof, and several trees were snapped off. The tornado lifted in an open field shortly afterward.
