Episode Narrative A supercell thunderstorm developed along the dryline over southeastern Swisher County, and quickly became tornadic. This storm produced a family of five tornadoes before it moved into Donley County of the Texas Panhandle. The most damaging tornado passed immediately west of Silverton (Briscoe County) shortly before 16:45 CST, where more than a half dozen utility poles and a few light structures were damaged.
Event Narrative Multiple observers photographed a tornado that developed just southwest of Silverton at 16:43 CST. This tornado crossed Texas Highway 86 just west of Silverton. Local law enforcement officials reported that seven utility poles were damaged along with lightweight buildings as the tornado impacted the outskirts of the city. Storm chasers continued to track the tornado until it roped out north of Silverton over open terrain around 17:00 CST.
