TS Alvin RIP

Tropical Storm Alvin has now dissipated, vanishing as quickly as it developed. The early NHC forecasts for this storm basically were a complete bust, with the storm evolving much differently than was first anticipated.

Wednesday afternoon (15 May) a number of tornadoes occurred in north Texas. The most deadly was an estimated EF-4 that struck Granbury, Texas, just southwest of Ft. Worth. The Granbury tornado killed six people and injured more than 100. Photo above is un-credited and is of a tornado near Milsap, Texas. The NWS Dallas-Ft. Worth Office has a preliminary damage survey up on their web page that documents 16 different tornadoes within a fairly small area of Texas.
