A damage survey has been completed that was conducted by the Albuquerque National Weather Service Office, on the Tornadic Supercell Thunderstorm that bombed eastern New Mexico with giant hail on Tuesday, June 12, 2012. This supercell thunderstorm had a very long track as it moved southeastward across eastern New Mexico, which ended up being over 100 miles long. It produced the most damage seen from a thunderstorm in the Dora area in more than 25 years. It also produced some of the largest measured hailstones in the history of the state.

 This thunderstorm also produced two tornadoes. The first was rated an EF1 and touched down near Floyd at 9:00 PM MDT.. It had 90 mph winds, had a damage path that was 1.4 miles long, and was 75 yards wide. As this supercell thunderstorm continued to track off to the southeast it produced a second tornado near Dora at 10:07 PM MDT. This tornado has been rated as an EF-0 with winds of 80 mph. It stayed on the ground for 1.5 miles and was 50 yards wide.
