Following the powerful EF2 tornado that hit the village of Teviotdale, the parent storm tracked eastward and produced this second tornado near Marsville. The touchdown occurred east of town, near the intersection of County Road 3 and County Road 25, at around 9:30pm. Its path was 2km long and 500m wide, along which several properties were damaged.

The tornado moved through several farms and produced considerable EF1 damage. Trees were snapped and uprooted, many of which crashed down onto homes and vehicles. The top of one tree was thrown into a swimming pool. In addition, crops were levelled, barns were also damaged and at least one well-built shed was destroyed.

This was one of four tornadoes that touched down on August 2, 2015. The others:
