 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: Wind speeds were estimated between 110 and 120 mph, or on the low end of EF2. This tornado was spawned by the same storm that produced the Youngsville tornado. The tornado began southwest of the intersection of Poydras Highway and Eunice Road and moved northeast, ending past Nursery Highway. Several brick homes had roofs removed near the highs school, with one home losing most of its second floor. A total of 44 homes were damaged or destroyed, with 80 homes impacted by the tornado. Three injuries occurred in a small brick home where the roof blew off, causing a brick wall and other debris to land on them. Several trees were damaged or uprooted. This was the strongest tornado in southwest Louisiana since the November 23 2004 tornado outbreak. EPISODE NARRATIVE: An approaching cold front resulted in showers and thunderstroms across southwest Louisiana, some of which became severe. Several tornadoes touched down across Acadiana.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This is a continuation of the tornado that began west of Maurice in Vermilion Parish. It strengthened to EF-2 intensity before dissipating a mile west of the Acadiana Mall. Near the Duhon and West Broussard Road intersection, one permanent home had the roof completely blown off, hitting the neighboring house and causing extensive damage. The two people inside the roof-less home escaped injury. Other homes along the path received minor roof or siding damage, and many trees were blown down. EPISODE NARRATIVE: As a cold front approached, a squall line developed. Additional storms sprung up in front of the squall line, and where storms merged, a few tornadoes touched down. Along the squall line, winds of 60 mph blew down trees and caused minor damage to homes.
