Leander. Roof and tree damage was found just north of this Road at several
residences. The tornado then tracked north and went parallel to Ronald Reagan

tornado then crossed Highway 29, weakened considerably, and finally dissipated
near the entrance of the Santa Rita ranch subdivision. The final rating of the
tornado is EF1 based on the roof and tree damage seen around hero way. The
remainder of the tornado track saw weak EF0 damage.
