This tornado touched down at 9:30pm and had a path that was 16km long and between 100m and 400m wide. A number of local residents witnessed the tornado which they described as being a multiple vortex, with two distinct funnels illuminated by flashes of lightning.

As it tracked through area farms, a number of barns were damaged, two of which were totally demolished with debris scattered through nearby fields. At one property, vehicles were moved around and a hay wagon was thrown 15m. Several farmhouses sustained minor damage to roofing and siding, a garage was destroyed and hundreds of trees were snapped and uprooted. Continuing on to the northeast, the tornado struck the Talisman Mountain Ski Resort, destroying a ramp and lift house and damaging a chairlift.

Total damage from the tornado was estimated to be around $2,500,000.
