Episode Narrative Showers and thunderstorms developed in association with a frontal system. Some of these storms produced damaging wind gusts and flash flooding. A tornado also occurred as a result of this weather system.
Event Narrative The tornado touched down along Bar K Road, where multiple trees were snapped or uprooted, and one manufactured home was damaged by a fallen tree. The tornado then continued northeast, passing through the Fiske Union community near the junction of Louisiana Highways 585 and 879. Along Highway 585, several trees were snapped or uprooted. In addition, there was shingle damage to homes, an outbuilding was damaged, and part of the facing was removed from a mobile home. The tornado paralleled Highway 585 for a short distance, snapping a few trees in a cemetery before lifting.
