Episode Narrative A complex of severe storms developed over the southern Texas Panhandle and the northwestern South Plains during the late afternoon and early hours of the 24th. These storms evolved into a bow-shaped linear complex and produced widespread damaging winds up to 66 mph over portions of the area. The most significant damage occurred in Hale County, where more than fifty utility poles were destroyed and minor structural damage was reportedly caused by falling trees in Plainview. Damage estimates across the South Plains region approached $300,000. No injuries were recorded.
Event Narrative The Texas Tech University West Texas Mesonet site near Ralls measured a peak gust of 63 mph as the severe storms impacted northern Crosby County. No damage was reported.
