This tornado first struck Clarks Grove, where a large warehouse building had walls collapsed and a large section of roof removed. Flying debris from this structure damaged surrounding buildings and vehicles, trees in town were snapped, and a large brick building had windows blown out. The tornado struck Geneva before dissipating, where trees and detached garages were damaged. Numerous barns, outbuildings, and garages were damaged or destroyed along the path. This was the earliest tornado in a calendar year on record in Minnesota.
