TORNADO IN RURAL PALO PINTO COUNTY
Date: May 26, 2015
- Chaser: Paige Burress, David Reimer
- Location: Highway 16 just south of Highway 180 (near Metcalf Gap, TX)
After filming another possible tornado just northeast of Metcalf Gap, TX we bugged out south as a nasty hail core was quickly approaching our position. While exercising our escape route a new circulation quickly developed and produced a brief tornado a few hundred yards to our southeast. Time was 603-604PM 3 miles south of Metcalf Gap. It didn’t produce damage and was gone within seconds (at least until it got wrapped in the rain). The circulation itself underwent a significant intensification a few moments later. It was rain-wrapped, but velocity data indicated a strong tornado was underway.
The map will display the approximate location of this chase (town). It should not be used for specific location information.
