An NWS damage survey has concluded that a small EF1 tornado touched down Sunday evening in the Wildhorse subdivision, in between Loop 1604 and the Government Canyon State Natural area on the west side of Bexar County. A large severe storm was moving northeast through the area just after 8 PM Sunday evening when it appears that a tornado developed near the Flying Fury Drive cul-de-sac and neighborhood drainage ditch. Minor damage was observed on Flying Fury with substantial roof damage observed to several homes on the east side of Palomino Path as the tornado moved northeast. Several of the homes had broken windows, large sections of roof lifted off, along with puncture marks from flying debris on many of the home exterior walls.  The maximum winds were reached at this location and were estimated to be 100 mph. The tornado continued moving northeast, taking down a fence at the end of Palomino Path before likely dissipating near the Wildhorse HOA Sports Park and open field/drainage area.
