Expires 2:45 AM EDT on May 27, 2015

* small stream Flood Advisory for...
southeastern Comanche County in central Texas...
northern Hamilton County in central Texas...
southern Erath County in north central Texas...
west central Bosque County in central Texas...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

... NWS damage survey for may 25 2015 tornadoes...

.Overview... A survey team found two separate tornadic damage
tracks in Lampasas County. One short track was found northeast of
Lampasas and the second track was found northwest of Kempner. Some
residential and numerous tree damage occurred with both tornadoes.
The first tornado occurred near the intersection of CR 3050 and
CR 3070. The second tornado started near the Lampasas River Bridge
on FM 2313 where it damaged numerous trees... and tracked
northeast... damaging two homes near the end of the track near CR
3210 and FM 2313. Both of these tornadoes received EF-1 ratings.
These two tornadoes occurred from the same storm.

The storm that produced the two tornadoes in Lampasas County also
produced an EF-1 tornado near Pidcoke in Coryell County. The
tornado started just south of Pidcoke and moved in a generally
north direction before hitting the Pidcoke cemetery and damaging
nearly all trees at the cemetery. Across the creek from the
cemetery... several homes were damaged... and then the track of the
tornado became more northeastward before dissipating near Shell
Mountain Road.

Another survey team found EF-2 damage associated with a tornado
in Milam County. The storm began near the Pettibone community and
tracked to the northeast for approximately 9 miles. One fatality
and five total injuries occurred with this tornado. EF-2 damage
was found to two manufactured homes... one of which was almost
completely destroyed and the other was turned upside down.
