 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: A strong EF2 tornado hit the town of Rice damaging several homes, derailing train cars, damaging a school, and overturning cars on the interstate. The tornado began about 4 miles outside the town limits of Rice and first damaged two homes near NW 050 road. One of the homes was completely destroyed. About a mile and half later, the tornado struck another home causing the exterior walls to collapse and taking the roof off the home. Next, the tornado entered the town of Rice and moved over a train track derailing 11 train cars. One of the train cars ended up in the nearby baseball field of the high school. The baseball field and nearby football stadium was also damaged, and the softball field was completely destroyed. Power poles and bleachers were damaged at the football and baseball field. At the softball field, the fences, dugouts, scorekeepers stand, scoreboard, light poles, and bleachers were all destroyed. The tornado then damaged an intermediate school causing one wall to lean and peeling the roof off the gymnasium. Next, the tornado crossed Interstate 45 where it overturned a few cars and trapped some people. One 18 wheeler carrying a dump truck lost the dump truck which fell onto a car traveling in the other direction. The driver of the car sustained minor cuts. East of the interstate, the tornado damaged 4 more homes causing mainly roof damage to the homes. The roof damage east of the interstate was mostly EF1 intensity. A total of 4 persons were injured during this tornado. All were transported to area hospitals with minor, non-life threatening injuries. In addition to the structural damage, trees were snapped along the path of the tornado. The maximum sustained winds were estimated to be 135 mph. EPISODE NARRATIVE: Severe thunderstorms developed along and east of Interstate 35 in association with a dryline across north Texas. The storms produced large amounts of hail which damaged hundreds, if not thousands, of roofs. In Hunt County alone, emergency officials estimated nearly 500 homes had some form of roof damage. In addition, a strong EF2 tornado moved through Rice damaging the new intermediate school, several homes, derailing train cars and overturning vehicles on Interstate 45. A second EF0 tornado damaged 10 homes near Lone Oak.
