Overview
Meteorologists from the National Weather Service office in Shreveport surveyed damage from a weak EF0 tornado that occurred in Caddo and Bossier Parishes during the evening of November 11, 2012.  The tornado began on the north side of Belcher in Caddo Parish in an open field between Highways 71 and 3049.  The tornado tracked east-northeast mainly across open farmland and crossed the Red River into Western Bossier Parish.  The tornado finally dissipated after crossing Highway 3 in a wooded area just south of Highway 160.  Large tree limbs were snapped off all along the path.  This damage is consistent with an EF0 tornado with estimated peak winds around 65 mph.
