Episode Narrative For the third consecutive day a powerful storm system brought a round of severe thunderstorms containing damaging straight line winds and two tornadoes which occurred Friday afternoon and night. These storms were associated with a strong upper system moving across the region. Most of the damage was associated with straight line winds to be 70 to 90 mph. However, two tornadoes did occur with the strongest an EF1 in Smith County. This system also dumped several inches of rain which caused some flash flooding in some areas.
Event Narrative This tornado briefly touched down and damaged 4 homes with minor to moderate damage mainly to roofs. One home had a deck and back portion of the house ripped off. A couple of sheds were also destroyed with numerous hardwood and softwood trees snapped and uprooted. The tornado moved along County Road 94 until it lifted as that road intersected with Highway 37. Maximum winds were around 100 mph.
