TYLER, Texas (KETK) – On Sunday morning, a line of strong to severe storms moved across Toledo Bend of Texas & Louisiana. On Monday, NWS Shreveport conducted their survey in Sabine county and determined the damage was consistent with straight-line winds.
Originally, the report was made of a possible tornado with flying debris in the Lowes Creek community in far east Sabine county, near Sabinetown. While Live Doppler Radar data suggested the strong signature of rotation, NWS Shreveport says it was consistent with thunderstorm winds.
Across the Toledo Bend River, two tornadoes touched down in Sabine Parish, one of them a significant EF-2 storm causing big damage and injuries.
