From NWS Dallas/Fort Worth:  Based on the damage surveyed…this tornado started just to the east-northeast of the Powderly/Camp Maxey area near the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 3298 and County Road 44360. Numerous trees were damaged /snapped or uprooted/ along the path of the tornado with some relatively minor roof damage to a handful of residential structures. The most concentrated damage occurred along County Road 45250 where considerable tree damage occurred and the EF-2 rating was assigned. The tornado crossed into Red River County as it was dissipating.

The tornado crossed the county line from Lamar County into Red River County and quickly dissipated over a rural area. The tornado uprooted a couple of trees before lifting. 

From NWS Shreveport: This is a continuation of the Powderly tornado which reached a maximum intensity of EF-2. A special thanks goes out to WFO Fort Worth for completing the survey.
