 Brief Description: HP Supercell developed along a quasi-stationary front and moved northeast. This Supercell produced a family of three tornadoes, numerous microbursts and giant hail. A meso was detected by dopplar radar with the HP supercell. In this supercell an F2 tornado was produced. As the supercell developed, massive mid level convergence occurred resulting in giant hail. The evolution continued resulting in a bow echo pattern where two additional weak tornadoes occurred in the northern comma heads In the first tornado, damage consisted of numerous snapped and fallen trees. Fifteen homes and three businesses were either moderately or severely damaged including roofs removed on two homes. Southwestern Bell phone truck heavily damaged from a fallen tree and a Ford Aerostar Van was crushed almost beyond recognition. Several telephone poles were tilted to a 45 degree angle.
