nighttime as tornadoes touched down from far northwestern Nebraska south to the Texas South Plains. In the NWS Lubbock
forecast area, a pair of tornadic supercells initially erupted along the dryline over the central South Plains during the
late afternoon hours and tracked northeastward across the extreme southeastern Panhandle through the early evening. These
two storms produced a total of seven tornadoes in the South Plains region, one that was observed to be a large
multi-vortex tornado north of Quitaque that tracked about 20 miles to the north-northeast. This tornado was rated an F2
