Tornado touched down near West Locust Avenue and Route 6 just west of Honesdale. Primary damage was to numerous trees which were uprooted and snapped. One home was damage and a shed was destroyed by trees falling. Minor damage to other homes and buildings occurred such as shingles blown off and objects tossed. Trees and debris were in a very convergent pattern indicative of a tornado. Some of the shingles were found on the upwind side of the storm. The tornado moved southeast across the Lackawaxen River and weakened as it moved up the hill on the other side.
