The tornado first formed and caused damage in northeast Montgomery County about 1:20 am CST along Union Chapel Road northwest of Bellflower. A home suffered roof damage with several trusses on the northwest side destroyed. The tornado was about 100 yards wide at this point and was rated F1. The tornado moved northeast and crossed Highway E several times. In the small community of Gamma, two homes suffered major roof damage, a barn and several outbuildings destroyed.
