Episode Narrative A strong low pressure center tracked from Missouri to Michigan. Meanwhile, its associated upper level trough pushed a cold front through West Virginia on either side of sunset. A fast moving band of rain, along and immediately ahead of the front, featured a narrow line of embedded showers. These convective showers helped mix down the winds that were located at 4 to 6 thousand feet above the ground. Surface wind gusts of 55 to 65 mph were common. A gust to 73 mph was recorded at the Parkersburg airport. A gust to 85 mph was recorded on top of the exposed Bee Mountain in eastern Kanawha County.

Trees and large branches fell onto power lines and blocked roads. The major utility company for north central West Virginia reported around 100,000 customers lost electricity before restoration began. The highest concentration of these outages were in Harrison and Doddridge counties followed closely by Lewis, Upshur, Jackson, and Wood Counties. In the southern counties, the major power company reported over 83,000 customers had lost electricity

Several buildings and homes sustained minor structural damages, while a few other buildings had significant or major damage. At Twin Branch near Davy of McDowell County, winds caused the entire roof of a church gym to separate from the rest of the structure. The roof then fell back down onto the cinderblock walls and nearby automobiles. A 35 year old woman was killed while standing near the building.
Event Narrative Trees were blown down in the Deep Valley vicinity.
