DALLAS (KRLD) - A new storm survey shows two EF-1 tornadoes touched down Wednesday in parts of North Texas.

Meteorologist Tom Bradshaw with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth says one tornado touched down in Northwest Parker County and another tornado touched down in the far eastern part of Palo Pinto County in the Mineral Wells area.

Bradshaw says, "a number of commercial businesses were impacted. The tornado that impacted parts of northwest Parker County was a little more rural in nature. We had at least a couple of homes that were impacted and a commercial business."

That same storm left many without power in the Dallas Fort Worth area. High winds knocked down a mobile home in Johnson County.

The wind gusts DFW Airport were the highest measured by the weather service's observing system since it was put in place at the airport in 1995.
