Bahia Blanca

This tornado touched down initially at 1550 local time, producing F1 damage in the process. A few minutes later, the tornado destroyed several wooden homes, killing 4 at this location before intensifying into an F3 as it moved towards the more built up areas of the city. Upon reaching the city, the tornado had reached F4 intensity, and had demolished several buildings, including a concrete reinforced office block, which had its top floor torn off, later resulting in the building having to be torn down and rebuilt. After going through the center of the city, the tornado rapidly weakened, and had dissipated by 1625 local time.
