EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -
The National Weather Service confirmed seven tornadoes touched down in East Texas on Monday.
They said one touched down just four miles southeast of Kilgore on County Road 281. They said the second touched down on Farm to Market Road 1794, near Beckville, and a third was on the ground for just a few seconds 9 miles ESE of Kilgore.
Additional tornado paths were found 9 miles west of Kilgore along CRR 2126 and FM 782, 9 miles north of Carthage along FM 1794, 10 miles north northeast of Carthage along CR 307, and 9 miles northeast of Carthage along CR 316.
All seven of these twisters were EF0s on the Enhanced Fujita Scale. Winds in all seven tornadoes were between 70 and 75 MPH.
Video of a funnel cloud captured by one of our KLTV viewers caught the eye of the National Weather Service.
"We saw several pictures on KLTV's website. None of the pictures we saw had the tornado on the ground, but due to some of the trees it could have been on the ground, but we just couldn't see it. Of course our radar were indicating that could definitely be the case," said Meteorologist Brandi Richardson with the National Weather Service.
So, Richardson and her co-worker packed their radar data and headed out early to survey the damage.
"It kind of helps us go back and do a little post-mortem analysis of what we saw and how we did and how we did on our warnings," Richardson explained.
They came to the conclusion that at least three tornadoes touched down. One of them in an East Texans' front yard near Beckville.
"This is the most severe that we've seen. Just a few limbs and trees snapped here and there. Very, very light damage. Looks like a very weak EF0. That's what we've seen so far. We're not to the end of the track yet, but that's what we've seen so far," Richardson said.
Richardson said when she saw this storm coming she had a few personal warnings to send out.
"I was actually at work working radar. So, I issued the warning on this storm. And I'm actually having a rare, I guess a rare occurrence to get to survey the storm that I warned on and it just happened to be right down the road from my house," Richardson said.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported and the damage surveyed from Monday's tornadoes did not leave any major damage.
The National Weather Service said the surveying they do will also help East Texans when it comes to working with their insurance companies.
