The National Weather Service has confirmed an EF-0 touched down within Friday afternoon's tornado-warned storm, 2.3 miles north of Pinconning.

The damage survey concluded the strength of the peak winds to be 70 miles per hour, with a path length of 2.0 miles. The width of the damage path was 100 yards.

According to the NWS, the tornado began near the northern end of Elevator Road around 3:16 PM and ran parallel to Lapan Road, where it uprooted pine trees and damaged large tree limbs.
