... NWS damage survey for 02/19/2017 tornado event in Hays
County...

.Overview... Storm surveys were conducted by NWS meteorologists
across Hays County... primarily along ranch Road 12 and new ranch
Road 12 across northwestern and northern San Marcos and into western
Kyle. These reports should still be considered preliminary and some
adjustments may be made to the tornado paths and strengths over the
coming days.

.San Marcos/Kyle tornado...

Rating: EF-1
estimated peak wind: 100 mph
path length /statute/: 9.75 miles
path width /maximum/: 300 yards
fatalities: 0
injuries: 0

Start date: Feb 19 2017
start time: 1126 PM CST
start location: 7 NW San Marcos / Hays County / TX
start lat/lon: 29.9156 / -98.0480

End date: Feb 19 2017
end time: 1135 PM CST
end location: 2 SW Kyle / Hays County / TX
end lat/lon: 29.9636 / -97.8986

Survey_summary: the survey team concluded that a tornado began at
the intersection of ranch Road 12 and Hugo Road where some trees
were noted as snapped and a small business had considerable
structural damage. The tornado traveled northeast and likely
traversed a large area of land that was unaccessible until reaching
Hilliard Road and a neighborhood along Thousand Oaks loop where a
wide area of considerable tree damage, including a tree uprooted and
fallen onto a vehicle, was found. The tornado path crossed the
blanco river before ending near the Kyle cemetery on old Stagecoach
Road. At this point, damage became much less significant and
sporadic moving east toward I-35.

Ef scale: the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies
tornadoes into the following categories.

EF0... weak... ... 65 to 85 mph
EF1... weak... ... 86 to 110 mph
EF2... strong... .111 to 135 mph
EF3... strong... .136 to 165 mph
EF4... violent... 166 to 200 mph
EF5... violent... >200 mph
