The touchdown occurred at about 2:30pm and the tornado was only on the ground briefly. After crossing Plover Mills Road, it moved in a southeasterly direction and caused considerable damage at a farm between Bryanston and Thorndale. There, trees were snapped, fencing was torn up and a barn was severely damaged. The building, large and well-constructed, had its roof torn off.
