This large tornado produced a damage path up to a half mile in width. Five persons injured, but no one was killed. Most damage occurred to farms, ranch buildings and farm equipment, as was rated F4 during the Texas portion of the damage path. Damages of one million dollars occurred in Hansford County with fifty thousand dollars of damages occurring in Moore County.

The tornado then crossed into Oklahoma from the Texas Panhandle and skipped along a 20-mile path including the Bryans Corner area in Beaver County. It injured 7 people in Oklahoma, and destroyed 2 houses, 2 mobile homes, a dairy barn, irrigation equipment, cars, fences, power lines, etc. It was rated F3 during the Oklahoma portion of the path.

  06/15/1997 1810-1814 0.5 100 F1 0 2 Beaver 5 N Turpin

Severe thunderstorms over the central and eastern Oklahoma Panhandle produced large hail and high winds along with a tornado which did damage and injuries in the northwest corner of Beaver County. This tornado destroyed six mobile homes and two barns, and downed multiple power lines. The tornado track was estimated.

  03/28/2007 1816-1854 22 150 EF2 2 0 Lipscomb TX/ Beaver 5 E Booker TX - 7 E Elmwood

The tornado originated five miles east of Booker, TX or between Booker and Darrouzett, or about six miles south of the Beaver County and Lipscomb County line at 6:16 PM CST. The tornado remained over open country and no damage or injuries were reported in Lipscomb County. The tornado moved northward and entered Beaver County, Oklahoma at 6:28 PM CST. Damage occurred on a farmstead about one mile into Beaver County severely damaging several outbuildings and a grain bin. Little or no damage occurred to the home.

The tornado continued north and briefly became a large multiple vortex tornado before it consolidated into one large funnel. The tornado snapped numerous power poles and large trees. The tornado then struck and destroyed a single-family home at 6:50 PM CST where two fatalities occurred. It appeared that the couple killed in the tornado did seek refuge in their small bathroom, which was destroyed. In addition to the small home, a storage barn was destroyed and two vehicles were moved as much as twenty yards. A horse trailer was destroyed as it bounced and rolled for approximately fifty yards. The tornado continued moving north for approximately another six or seven miles, damaging only power poles, fences, and trees before it lifted at 6:54 PM CST seven miles east of Elmwood, OK.
