Severe Thunderstorms in Texas and Oklahoma

An out break of severe weather last night and this morning in Texas and Oklahoma caused lots of damage. The storm flooded roads and knocked out power for over 200,000 people in northern Texas. The thunderstorm also produced damaging wind sheer that knocked over trees and caused property damage. The same storm also produced baseball size hail that shattered car wind shields casing people to be sent to the hospital.  Along with the flooding, hail, and wind sheer the thunderstorm also spawned at least 14 tornadoes. Which is very impressive. All of the tornadoes were in Texas, so the damage sustained in Oklahoma was not a tornado but due to the wind sheer over 95 mphs.  So far there has only been one person reported dead.

  1. It’s pretty clear to me that Texas/Oklahoma can handle this type of severe weather. If Virginia had gotten large hail like this, I feel as though there would have been a lot more deaths so far due to neglecting proper safety procedures.
