This EF-1 tornado embedded in a QLCS formed along Highway 24 east
of Liberty. Here, large limbs were broken off an oak tree. The
tornado moved to the east-southeast towards Patterson Rd where
small limbs were broken and uprooted trees were noted. This
tornado strengthened to peak intensity as it moved into a patch
of trees just west and on Peoria Rd. Here, large swaths of trees
were either snapped or uprooted in a convergent pattern. A tree
fell on a home here, but no one was injured. This tornado then
paralleled Turner Rd to the south where it coninued to snap and
uproot pines. Damage from where a mobile home used to be was
noted, but it`s unclear whether it was from the storm. This
tornado continued to the east-southeast before lifting soon after
snapping a tree along Lower Glading Rd.
