Car Wash; Shopping Center Damaged by Tornado in Corinth

The National Weather Service has confirmed that two weak tornadoes struck the northern suburbs of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including an EF-1 in Corinth.

The Hickory Creek tornado was classed as an EF-1 storm with winds of 85 to 95 mph that cut a 1/2-mile-long, 50-yard-wide path.

It caused minor roof damage, destroyed garage doors and business signs and heavily damaged a car wash.

The owner of Master Shine Wash and Detail said it will likely take more than a month to repair the damage where large metal beams, insulation and concrete were ripped from the structure.

The Kensington Square shopping center also suffered a lot of damage. The wind folded road signs like paper and tossed them into the parking lot.

The storm also uprooted trees, broke business signs and shattered windows.

A damage estimate has not yet been provided.
