Episode Narrative A pre-existing low level boundary, or weak front, was oriented from southwest to northeast across the west Texas South Plains region during the midday hours of the 25th. As thunderstorms developed in a very moist atmosphere, this feature became a focus for the development of at least four landspout tornadoes. Tornadoes initially developed just southeast of Lubbock during the Sunday lunch hour. These tornadoes were observed by many Lubbock residents, but only resulted in very minor damage to trees and utility lines. |Thunderstorm outflow forced the weak frontal boundary to move northwestward across the central South Plains during the afternoon hours, where it again provided for the development of tornadoes in Swisher and Castro Counties. |Thunderstorms quickly evolved to pose a threat of heavy rainfall and flash flooding by the early evening hours. Flash flooding became widespread over a large section of the central South Plains, with numerous roadways and highways closed due to flooding. At least six automobile mishaps were attributed to the flooding.
Event Narrative Numerous reports of flash flooding were reported along U.S. Highway 62/82 between Lorenzo and Crosbyton. Flowing flood waters along that highway contributed to a vehicle accident that resulted in two injuries.
