... NWS damage survey for 02/19/2017 tornado event in eastern
Hays County and southern Travis County...

.Overview... Storm surveys were conducted by NWS meteorologists
across Hays and southern Travis County. These reports should
still be considered preliminary and some adjustments may be
made to the tornado paths and strengths over the coming days.
Other damage surveys will continue across south central Texas
in the next few days.

.Niederwald/Mustang Ridge tornado...

Rating: EF-0
estimated peak wind: 85 mph
path length /statute/: 3 miles
path width /maximum/: 100 yards
fatalities: 0
injuries: 0

Start date: Feb 19 2017
start time: 1148 PM CST
start location: 2 NW Niederwald / Hays County / TX
start lat/lon: 30.0361 / -97.7415

End date: Feb 19 2017
end time: 1151 PM CST
end location: 1 NW Mustang Ridge / Travis County / TX
end lat/lon: 30.0613 / -97.7046

Survey_summary: the survey team concluded that many damage areas across
central Hays County were due to straight line winds, but a new tornado
indeed developed northwest of Niederwald. Damage in this area included
a destroyed aluminum barn structure, car port damage, and a few trees
with large limbs snapped. As the tornado moved northeast into the Mustang
Ridge area, multiple Mobile homes had significant roof damage consistent
with EF-0 speeds. The tornado likely lifted as it approached sh 130 as
damage east of sh 130 was found to be caused by straight line winds.

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
EF3... strong... .136 to 165 mph
EF4... violent... 166 to 200 mph
EF5... violent... >200 mph

Note:
the information in this statement is preliminary and subject to
change pending final review of the event and publication in
NWS storm data.
