 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: Most of the tornado damage was north of interstate 30 with some structures showing EF2 damage. In particular, the cinderblock and brick lawnmower business just north of Hwy 82 was completely destroyed with roofing debris and lawnmower parts thrown to the west and north of the building location. A brick home several hundred yards from the lawnmower business sustained significant damage to its roof and exterior walls. A metal shop building built with large metal I-beams was completely destroyed. I-beams were twisted and thrown in a northerly and westerly direction up to 200 yards from the building location with concrete still attached. The trees between the large metal building and the interstate were uprooted or snapped in a convergent pattern...indicative of tornadic winds. In total...12 structures were damaged or destroyed between Hwy 82 and the interstate and numerous trees were downed. Three tractor trailers were flipped on interstate 30 which resulted in the interstate being shut down and there was one injury. Further south of Hwy 82 on the Lonestar Army Ammunition Depot, numerous trees were snapped or uprooted and damage to parts of the Depot were reported...although it was not surveyed. North of interstate 30 along the service road...an outbuilding sales business lost several buildings and had many others damaged. Along Farm to Market 2253, numerous trees were snapped and uprooted on either side of the road and several sheds and barns were damaged or destroyed. A greenhouse was severely damaged near the end of the track. Some homes were also damaged from fallen trees. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A strong pressure gradient initially across northeast Texas and northwest Louisiana during the pre dawn hours of April 10th produced non-thunderstorm wind gusts responsible for downing trees and power lines. Later that morning...a squall line entered northeast Texas and southeast Oklahoma producing mostly wind damage along with some large hail and an isolated tornado in Bowie County Texas.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: An EF2 tornado touched down in Dierks, Arkansas destroying a laundrymat and damaging numerous homes and businesses. Numerous trees were snapped or uprooted along the track which started on the southwest side of town where a storage building was destroyed. The tornado crossed the town downing trees and powerlines. Shingles were torn off of numerous homes within the town. The tornado continued northeast and ripped a 100 ft section of roof off of a chicken house. The tornado lifted northeast of the chicken house. Maximum winds are estimated at 105-115 mph. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A very unstable airmass developed across much of the Southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley during the afternoon and evening hours of April 30th. A strong upper level trough moved into the Southern Plains during the afternoon and sparked strong to severe thunderstorms across much of southeast Oklahoma into northeast Texas and southwest Arkansas. Strong deep layer shear and low level directional shear was present during the evening and this resulted in storms developing supercellular characteristics. Large hail and isolated tornadoes developed with this activity across the region.
