 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: Numerous homes were damaged in the town of Dodson with several completely destroyed. One mobile home was picked up and moved 30 feet west of its original location where it was destroyed with parts of the frame wrapped around a neighboring home. The two injuries occurred in the destroyed home. Approximately 27 mobile homes and 11 built in place structures in the center of Dodson sustained severe damage from snapped or falling trees and/or wind damage. A mobile home in the center of Dodson was rolled off its foundation and destroyed. The tornado touched down on the southwest side of town along US 167 and moved northward 1.5 miles before lifting along State Route 1235. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A very unstable airmass developed across the four state region during the afternoon hours of May 2nd. A weak cold front had moved southward during the morning hours into southeast Oklahoma and southwest Arkansas and had stalled. A weak shortwave moved into the Texas Hill County and produced enough lift...along with the development of a strong low level jet...for strong to severe thunderstorms to erupt across the region. The storms initially developed as supercells...producing large hail and isolated tornadoes but then evolved into a squall line. Strong straight line winds accompanied the squall line with winds in excess of 100 mph reported with some storms. There were also isolated tornadoes reported within the squall line itself. Damage was extensive across the region but overnight...the repeated training of storms resulted in a widespread flash flooding event. Numerous counties and parishes were flooded with rainfall amounts in excess of 6 inches in a 12 hour period common. By the time the event ended...there were five different line echo wave patterns that developed across the four state region the afternoon of May 2nd through the morning hours of May 3rd.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This storm developed in a wooded area along and east of Olive Grove Road in Jackson Parish where several small pine trees were snapped. Further east along Hwy 144 north of Eros, numerous large trees were snapped and a nearby home sustained roof damage. A barn in a field nearby also sustained significant roof damage. The tornado tracked east into Ouachita Parish, snapping and uprooting trees as well as causing minor roof damage to nearby homes along Guyton Loop Road. The tornado crossed Hwy 34, and moved onto Old Jonesboro Road where numerous trees were snapped and uprooted. One tree was physically moved 30 feet with the root ball intact, leaving a large hole in its original location. One mobile home was moved off of its foundation and several sheds and outbuildings were completely destroyed. Roof damage occurred to several homes along the street as well. The worst damage occurred to a home along Antioch Church Road, where the entire roof was peeled off and destroyed, leaving only the walls. 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: Numerous trees were snapped near the intersection of Collier and Water Well Roads. The tornado then crossed Gum Springs Road, where it completely destroyed one well-built two story brick home and an adjacent brick garage. The home was approximately 4000 sq. ft in size, built in 1997, and its destruction was the basis of the EF-4 rating. Many of the nearby trees were completely snapped, with several near the home snapped off at the base. One single wide mobile home was also destroyed, with its remnants blown into a wooded area about 300 yards away. Another nearby home was moderately damaged, while two other homes suffered minor damage. The tornado then crossed into an open field, before entering a heavily wooded area, traveling northeast across Highways 84 and 167, where sporadic minor tree damage was observed just west and north of Winnfield. Maximum winds are estimated around 170 mph, with a maximum width of 400 yards. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A potent...upper level short wave accompanied a prefrontal feature during the afternoon hours of November 29th across north central Louisiana. These thunderstorms developed in a weakly unstable airmass across the region. However...there was strong wind shear present...especially in the lowest 3 kilometers of the atmosphere. A broken line of thunderstorms developed across east central Texas into northwest Louisiana along the prefrontal trough axis. These thunderstorms quickly became supercells. One of these storms produced a significant tornado in Winn Parish which traveled northeast and dropped again in southern Ouachita Parish. Other storms downed powerlines in northwest Louisiana and minor flooding problems.

 Brief Description: High precipitation supercells developed along the leading edge of a dry line across eastern Texas which moved into northwest Louisiana. Numerous trees and power lines were downed as the tornado moved across the area. The most extensive damage was noted near Atkins, LA (2.5 miles south of Elm Grove on US 71), where one brick structure was almost totally demolished. Only pieces of two walls remained. The brick structure had 6 inch iron poles supporting the corners and these were bent and twisted. Near the brick building was a two story house which had its roof completely removed and most of its siding stripped off. A mobile home also on this property was completely destroyed and strewn across a field. Some trees that were left standing had their bark and leaves stripped off. Immediately adjacent to this damage, on the other side of US 71, another farm building was completely destroyed along with numerous trees leveled. Eyewitness accounts indicated that two tornadoes occurred with this supercell. The descriptions were consistent with those of cyclic, tornadic supercells. Only one injury was reported at this location. A mans' arm was lacerated to the bone by flying debris.
