A National Weather Service meteorologist surveyed tornado damage
in an area located 10 to 13 miles due west of Chama New Mexico
near the New Mexico/Colorado state line where elevations range
from 7500 feet msl to around 9800 feet.

The supercell thunderstorm that spawned the brief tornado previously
produced up to golfball sized hail in the community of Dulce located
10.5 miles farther west... and likely produced continuous damage due to
hail... wind... and/or tornado for at least 30 miles.

An initial touchdown was determined to be 1.2 miles west-northwest of
the intersection of U.S. Highways 64/84. The tornado traveled slightly
north of due east over complex terrain of the lazy Triangle anchor
ranch... passing less than 1/4 mile north of the ranch Headquarters
located near the U.S. Highway 64/84 intersection. Numerous if not
hundreds of large diameter Pine trees and Cedars were snapped and/or
twisted and subsequently uprooted along the first one to one and a half
miles. An old long-standing chapel dating back to the 1940s was
completely destroyed. A 6-foot 4x6" beam was carried 150 yards.
The main ranch residence suffered considerable damage including
complete removal of its pitched roof that was carried 50 yards
to the east-northeast. A bunkhouse and other storage buildings
sustained significant damage in the vicinity of the ranch Headquarters.


Ef scale: the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies tornadoes into
the following categories.

EF0... weak... ... 65 to 85 mph
EF1... weak... ... 86 to 110 mph
EF2... strong... .111 to 135 mph
