Episode Narrative Evening severe thunderstorms on the 10th brought much needed rain to the South Plains and Rolling Plains but also produced damaging straight-line winds. Storms developed along a cold front stretched across the region with storms initially forming in the Permian Basin. As the storms moved into the South Plains they intensified. A strong gust front from the initial storms created a haboob that moved across several counties. There was no damage or injuries reported with the haboob. Lightning from these storms also started a wildfire in Motley county. The most significant damage was in King and Cottle Counties as a new complex of thunderstorms developed in Crosby and Dickens Counties and moved northeastward. Strong outflow winds caused damage from Dumont (King County) to Paducah (Cottle County). Paducah High School sustained significant damage from these straight-line winds. A wake low over Garza county created high wind gusts locally enhanced by the Caprock escarpment. These winds were measured by the Texas Tech University West Texas mesonet.
Event Narrative Law enforcement personnel estimated wind gusts to 70 mph in Ralls. There was a report of one dozen power poles downed south of Lorenzo as well as a center pivot irrigation system destroyed.
