Episode Narrative A supercell thunderstorm produced a tornado and hail during the early evening hours.
Event Narrative Numerous trained storm spotters reported the touchdown of the tornado approximately 17 miles south southwest of Mullen. The tornado traveled across open rangeland until encountering one ranch. As it moved past the ranch, it demolished a metal windbreak, a tower, an outbuilding, and a windmill. The tornado also broke off large trees and carried a pickup cab 100 feet. The tornado then continued on a east-southeast track carrying debris 2 miles. The tornado was on the ground for about 3.5 miles.
