Survey_summary: this tornado was produced by the bookend vortex
of a Bow echo that moved through the city of Elgin on the afternoon
of may 23rd 2017. The tornado began just east of Texas Highway 95
and just north of roemer Road, where it displaced and flipped a shed
off its foundation. The tornado then caused extensive damage to a
business along roemer Road. As it continued to the east-southeast,
the tornado ripped the metal roof off a large barn and caused roof
damage to a well-built home adjacent to the barn. In The Pasture
adjacent to these structures, there were multiple pieces of splintered
wood that were driven into the ground from the opposite direction from
which the storm came. Several cattle and a bull were reportedly thrown
about 1500 feet from one pasture into another, jumping a couple of fences
in the process. The tornado then completely destroyed an old wooden barn
just north of roemer Road. At this point, the tornado was approximately
moving along roemer Road, and caused some minor tree damage. The tornado
then crossed Red Town Road just south of roemer Road and ended just east
of Red Town Road, where it caused some minor damage to a structure.

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