Three Tornadoes Confirmed in North Texas; More Coming?
Three tornadoes were confirmed by the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth, Texas on Tuesday as a multi-day severe weather and flooding threat continued across much of the South.
The three twisters were all rated at an EF-1 rating by the National Weather Service (NWS) on Tuesday, with significant damage reported from two of them.
The twister of greatest destruction appeared to be Monday night’s Cool, Texas tornado that reportedly damaged 12 homes and four barns, according to WFAA-TV. Another one early on Tuesday morning led to 16 units at an apartment complex in Stephenville, Texas being destroyed, according to the Red Cross. The third tornado hit Tolar, Texas also on Tuesday morning (pictured), damaging at least four mobile homes, according to NBC-5 in Dallas.
The NWS said a combined four injuries took place from the tornadoes, although no fatalities were reported.
The tornadoes and accompanying severe weather are all part of a slow-moving upper low that is bringing not only severe storms but extensive flooding to the region, with 5.13″ of rain reported in Shreveport, Louisiana in just 10 hours on Tuesday night, leading to numerous reports of water-covered roadways and inundated businesses and homes.
