The tornado formed 1.5 miles southwest of Friendship, OK in Jackson County and moved north-northwest to just south of Quartz Mountain State Park in Greer County. The tornado was large and composed of as many as 6 vortices at times. The damage path was up to 1.2 miles in width, but there were areas without damage inside the path due to the multiple vortex nature of the tornado.

A 4-year-old girl and her 25-year-old aunt were killed when a mobile home was destroyed 2 miles west of Friendship. Approximately 25 houses and 5 mobile homes were damaged or destroyed. Numerous cattle were killed or injured and 10 to 15 greyhounds were killed. Damages were estimated at $500,000.
