 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: The tornado first touched down in a wooded area west of Ireland Williams Road. The tornado quickly intensified as it approached Interstate 20 near mile marker 628 where 2 businesses were destroyed on both the south and north services roads. One of the businesses was a metal building and the other was a mobile home. One home was completely destroyed with only a few interior walls remaining. A second home sustained major damage to the roof and carport. Debris was scattered across interstate 20 and Hwy 80. Several other homes were damaged further east along both sides of the service road. Many trees were snapped and uprooted in the area???some were snapped down close to the base. The tornado continued northeast crossing Bellview Road into Jonesville, TX where a grocery store roof was peeled and walls were blown out of a large warehouse. The tornado also damaged some metal buildings north of Jonesville along FM 134. The tornado tracked east across a wooded area snapping and uprooting trees crossing FM 9 headed east into Caddo Parish in LA. Maximum winds are estimated at 150-160 mph. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A very warm and unstable air mass developed across the region on January 20th. This air mass was accompanied by unusually high dewpoint values for late January with ambient temperatures approaching the 70 degree mark. A very strong and vigorous storm system moved out of the Great Basin and into the Southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley during the late afternoon and evening hours of January 20th. Wind shear throughout the atmosphere was very strong and supportive of strong to severe thunderstorms. Low level wind shear was significant enough such that super cell thunderstorms developed across the region, producing tornadoes, large hail and damaging wind gusts.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: The tornado was a continuation of the Harrison County tornado that produced EF3 damage across portions of Waskom, Texas. The tornado weakened significantly as it cross the Texas/Louisiana line and moved into Caddo Parish. A weakened tornado continued east crossing Greenwood Mooringsport road where several trees were uprooted and continued east over portions of western Cross Lake before lifting southwest of Blanchard. Maximum winds are estimated at 150-160 mph at the tornadoes strongest point. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A very warm and unstable air mass developed across the region on January 20th. This air mass was accompanied by unusually high dewpoint values for late January with ambient temperatures approaching the 70 degree mark. A very strong and vigorous storm system moved out of the Great Basin and into the Southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley during the late afternoon and evening hours of January 20th. Wind shear throughout the atmosphere was very strong and supportive of strong to severe thunderstorms. Low level wind shear was significant enough such that super cell thunderstorms developed across the region, producing tornadoes, large hail and damaging wind gusts. In addition to the severe thunderstorms, some storms produced flash flooding as they continued to train across the same general areas, especially across portions of northwest Louisiana and southwest Arkansas.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This tornado initially touched down in southwestern Miller County, Arkansas along CR 80...snapping several pine trees about 2 miles south of Ravana. The tornado then moved toward the intersection of CR 31 and CR 32. Here, at its widest and strongest, the tornado uprooted and snapped numerous pine and oak trees, some 2 to 3 feet in diameter. The storm completely destroyed an outbuilding and mobile home, placing roofing material in a tree approximately a half mile away. Mostly EF1 damage was noted elsewhere as the tornado continued moving east-northeast across southern Miller County. Numerous pine and oak trees were either snapped or uprooted, with pieces of roofing material ripped from well-constructed homes. The tornado passed near the intersection of US-71 and AR-549, near the community of Doddridge, before lifting approximately 2.5 miles north-northeast of Kiblah AR. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A strong upper level storm system along with a surface dry line/front over northeast Texas moved east during the evening hours of April 9th into the early morning hours of April 10th causing long lived supercell thunderstorms. These thunderstorms caused long track tornadoes to occur across southeast Oklahoma, southwest Arkansas, northeast Texas, and north Louisiana.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: Several homes and metal outbuildings were damaged closer to the Timpson, Texas area. A travel trailer and barn was completely destroyed. Numerous trees snapped along the path as well. This tornado continued into southern Panola County, Texas. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A strong upper level storm system moved its way out of the southern Great Basin and into the Southern Plains during the afternoon hours of December 23rd. Strong southerly flow was found ahead of this storm system with dewpoint temperatures in the lower to middle 60s noted northward to the Interstate 20 corridor of northeast Texas and northern Louisiana. Impressive deep layer shear was noted in the warm sector across the region which was conducive for discrete storm cells during the afternoon and evening across northeast Texas. These storms spawned tornadoes and produced large hail across portions of northeast Texas. The storm system moved eastward during the predawn hours of December 24th with again, numerous storms producing tornadoes across southern Arkansas and northern Louisiana. In addition to all the storm damage...these storms were prolific rain makers with numerous reports of flash flooding across the region as well.
