Satellite tornado destroyed a grain silo that was tossed into a tree line about quarter mile southeast and completely destroyed a barn building as well. Tornado intensified and broadened its width as it carried ENE and completely leveled a two story house with debris scattered downstream across a field and across CR 200 W. It then passed through a heavily wooded area snapping or uprooting most trees before crossing CR 100 W and then completely destroying a single story brick ranch home. Adjacent machine shed was heavily damaged here as well and included a pickup truck that was picked up and tossed northeast of the house.

Tornado then progressed eastwards along County Road 600 N approximately one and one half mile before damaging a residential home, and destroying a detached car garage and well built hay barn. Debris from the hay barn was lofted several hundred yards from the structure while the home suffered substantial shingle and window damage. Just to the east, a home had it's roof peeled back. The tornado then shifted to the southeast towards County Road 700 W where it destroyed a silo and a well built barn that was next to the destroyed silo, and took the roof off of a second silo.
