CHASE SUMMARY

Texas Storm Chasers’s Paige Burress filmed multiple tornadoes near Millsap, Texas, on May 15, 2013. The strongest and longest-lived of these daytime tornadoes produced EF-1 damage in Millsap. After dark, she witnessed a mile-wide tornado just south of Cleburne, Texas. This tornado was the largest tornado of the day and resulted in EF-3 damage. While the Cleburne tornado was the largest, it should not be confused with the Granbury EF-4 tornado that killed six individuals earlier that evening. It was also produced by this parent supercell.

The map will display the approximate location of this chase (town). It should not be used for specific location information.
