Episode Narrative A deep upper level trough across the Four Corners Region of the United States began ejecting out into the Southern and Central Plains during the afternoon, evening and overnight hours of Sunday, March 11th. This storm system produced some severe thunderstorms, some of which produced damaging winds, isolated tornadoes and large hail. Excessive heavy rainfall also accompanied the storm system with some flash flooding reported across portions of the region.
Event Narrative An EF0 tornado touched down 5 miles northwest of San Augustine, Tx. and tracked north northeast before lifting just south of the San Augustine/Shelby County Texas line. The initial touchdown was just east of Hwy. 96 and west of FMm 3230 where a larger tree was uprooted. Large limbs and tin from a chicken house was peeled back near FM. 1279. The path width was 50 yards wide with a path length of near 4 miles. Maximum winds were estimated near 70 mph.
