... NWS damage survey for the 4/26/15 tornadoes...
Supercell thunderstorms developed just south of Interstate 20 across Eastland and Comanche counties... and moved east-northeast roughly following the shape of Interstate 20 west of Interstate 35 to the Interstate 35w corridor. These supercells produced very large hail and several EF-0 tornadoes from Sunday afternoon through the late evening hours of the day. The tornadoes primarily occurred in sparsely populated areas... primarily damaging trees and producing light damage to residences and businesses in their path. One of the most notable facts of the evolution of this event was the fact that one of the supercells became nearly stationary over Johnson County for 2 to 3 hours. This nearly stationary storm produced 4 tornadoes as its updraft cycled over southern Johnson County. The storm also produced a swath of straight line wind damage from fisherman's Paradise in far southwest Johnson County to the northeast near Rio Vista. The most destructive aspect of this storm was likely the flash flooding it produced as this nearly stationary storm dumped over 6 inches of rain over large portions of central and eastern Johnson County. Many County roads across Johnson County remained closed during the damage survey on Monday due to the widespread flooding that began Sunday evening. There were no serious injuries and no fatalities reported during this severe weather event.
Start date: 4/26/2015 start time: 11:01 PM CDT start location: 2 E Rio Vista
End date: 4/26/2015 end time: 11:10 PM CDT end location: 2 NE Rio Vista
Survey_summary: this tornado appeared to rotate counterclockwise within a much larger... approximately 1.5 mile width... circulation within the rotating updraft of the parent supercell thunderstorm. The path took a nearly Horseshoe shape track as it looped in a counterclockwise direction east of Rio Vista.
