Episode Narrative Thunderstorms developed along and east of a dry line over the eastern Texas panhandle. The atmosphere was extremely unstable and wind shear was more than sufficient to support severe thunderstorms, including supercell thunderstorms. Showers and thunderstorms that developed early in the day, gave way to more severe thunderstorms by mid afternoon. Severe weather of all types occurred, with numerous locations receiving very large hail. Tornadoes were also reported in Roger Mills and Ellis counties, with some significant damage reported. Flooding also became an issue as some of the same areas received heavy rainfall for the second day in a row. Monetary damages were estimated.
Event Narrative This tornado moved into Ellis County from northern Roger Mills County. As the tornado moved into the Packsaddle area north of the Canadian River and east of US-283, an unanchored mobile home along EW-77 Road was destroyed with the steel frame of the mobile home tossed about 100 yards to the northeast. Significant tree damage also occurred in this area. Although the tornado remained large as it moved northeast from this area, it remained over relatively rural areas and no other significant damage was reported.
