A severe thunderstorm emerged out of Stephens County, moving into southern portions of southern Young County. A tornado developed near the South Bend region, where damage occurred to several homes and businesses. The tornado then continued moving northeast, paralleling HWY 67 toward Graham. The tornado then veered slightly to the east as it approached Sidney Mountain, crossing HWY 67 just south of Rosser Ranch Rd. The tornado then struck multiple homes, leaving behind a swath of damage before moving over open fields again. The tornado then continued moving east causing damage to one additional structure along state HWY 16.  Farther east, the damage along Canyon Road did not exhibit tornadic origins.  Rather, it was likely caused by the storm’s rear flank downdraft.
