    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.
