Officials from the National Weather Service Field office in Fort Worth toured the area affected by the storm that happened yesterday evening.   During the two hour tour the area where the storm struck was evaluated for evidence of windspeed and direction and the impacts that it had on property, trees and the like.   At the end of the assessment Tom Bradshaw – Meteorologist in Charge at the Fort Worth Office of the National Weather Service determined that the storm that impacted Copperas Cove met the criteria to be classified as an EF2 Tornado with peak wind speeds of approximately 115 Mph. 

 

The path of the tornado stretched almost one mile in length with damage noted to homes and property on either side of the path.   The damaged property count remains at 198 and NO INJURIES were reported as a result of this storm.
