The National Weather Service has determined there were two tornadoes in northern Brown County the night of May 18, rather than one tornado as it initially reported.
    “I did find another tornado track just south of May,” Hector Guerrero of the National Weather Service in San Angelo said via email.
    The EF1 tornado began about 3 miles southeast of May, moved southeast,
then northeast and then turned back to the northwest and west, making a
complete loop, Guerrero said.
    The tornado uprooted and snapped branches of many large Oak Trees.  
    The tornado tore off a roof of a mobile home, destroyed a chicken coop, damaged
outdoor lawn furniture, ripped off sheet metal of a barn and tossed it for over
100 yards.
     As the tornado continued to move west across County Road 478, it became
about a half mile wide as it damaged numerous trees.
    At this point, based on
radar, the twister was at its strongest.
    Guerrero described the tornado’s track as “wild … I've never seen a track like this one before and it was at least a half-mile wide.”
    The weather service initially reported that a single tornado touched down in the Cross Cut area. It appeared the tornado was on the ground for four to five miles and was about a quarter-mile wide, the weather service said.

    That tornado was also described as EF1, which has a wind speed of 86-110 mph and can cause damage including roof damage, mobile homes pushed off foundations and moving vehicles pushed off the road, according to www.tornadofacts.net.
