...NWS DAMAGE SURVEY FOR 6/22/2019 TORNADO EVENT...

.Overview...
A National Weather Service damage survey crew determined two tornadoes
produced EF-0 damage to the east and southeast of Goodnight, Texas.
Damage from these tornadoes was observed to the south and to the
north of US 287, mainly between Armstrong County Roads 29 and 30.

The first tornado began around 10:43 PM, where minor vegetation
damage was observed in the canyon. As the tornado moved north,
a center pivot irrigation system was damaged, as well as one home.
This first tornado moved east and northeast, before dissipating before
reaching US287.

About five minutes later, the second tornado developed to the north
and west of where the first tornado dissipated. This tornado moved
due north at first, producing minor tree damage. The tornado then
turned northwest, causing damage to one cabin home, creating a debris
field to the northeast, northwest, and southeast. This tornado
continued to move northwest, completely destroying another center
pivot irrigation system. Just after 11 PM, the second tornado
dissipated as well.
