... NWS damage survey for Sunday may 24 2015 tornado event...

.Overview... Two early morning tornadoes are confirmed in Dallas County
from the overnight storms. The first... began in the city of Dallas as damage
to trees and power lines occurred near the intersection of Walnut Hill and
marsh. The tornado continued to the north-northwest in a narrow convergent
path. As the tornado crossed over LBJ freeway at josey Lane... an apartment
complex suffered roof damage as the tornado moved into Farmers Branch. Most
of the damage in the city of Dallas was EF0 damage... but the damage increased
as the storm moved into the city of Farmers Branch. A few warehouse buildings
suffered roof damage near the intersection of valwood Parkway and I-35e before
the tornado dissipated near Standridge Stadium Park... barely across the
Carrollton city limits.

The Irving tornado occurred roughly at the same time as the Dallas / Farmers
Branch tornado... but was slightly stronger. This tornado produced extensive
damage to trees... power lines... and businesses in the vicinity of Highway
114 and MacArthur. This tornado began just north of a Golf course in Las
Colinas... and traveled northwest for slightly over a mile. The most extensive
damage occurred at buildings on north MacArthur Boulevard between corporate
drive and west Walnut Hill Lane.

Survey crews also looked at sporadic damage in Ellis County... between
Waxahachie and Midlothian. This damage was determined to be straight line
wind damage... with estimated wind speeds of 65 to 70 mph.

Additional areas of damage will be investigated as more information is made
available.
