Episode Narrative A strong surface low and dryline interacted with a very unstable atmosphere over North Texas. Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes were reported as strong storms developed. A total of 5,500 cars and 3,500 homes and businesses were reportedly damaged by hail.
Event Narrative This tornado touched down near Sylvania Park, just southwest of the intersection of Beach and Belknap Streets. Severe damage occurred on Wheeler Street from North Beach to Haltom Road, and along Elliott Reeder Road from Haltom Road east approximately a half mile. A fatality also occurred in this area. Substantial roof damage was done to a grocery store, several homes, and a church. Another church suffered steeple damage. Several commercial buildings along Elliott Reeder Road were damaged and numerous recreational vehicles and tractor-trailers were damaged or destroyed. Trees and power lines were also downed. Near the intersection of Riverbend and Jack Newell Roads, a commercial building suffered partial collapse of an east-facing wall. Intermittent damage to trees, fences, and at least one home occurred in the River Trails subdivision, west of the tornado track. The tornado dissipated just west of Precinct Line Road. Winds speeds were estimated at 100-110 MPH. Haltom City and Fort Worth officials estimated about two million dollars in property losses within the two cities.
