Chase Logs

The storm chase logs of this tornado led by our experts

National Centers for Environmental Information reports:

This tornado developed southwest of Crowell and was observed by many storm spotters and storm chasers. Although information from storm chasers indicate that the tornado initially formed farther to the west-southwest in open ranchland, the damage found in a storm survey was generally confined to mesquite tree limb damage observed on FM-263 about 3 miles west of State Highway 6. Numerous storm chaser videos and observations show that the tornado turned more to just south of east after crossing FM-263 and narrowly missed wind turbines along FM-263 just west of Highway 6 before turning to the northeast and crossing State Highway 6 before dissipating.
