Episode Narrative Widespread flooding was reported along and south of a northward moving warm front across the lower Toledo Bend and Sam Rayburn country of Deep East Texas into the piney woods of northeast Texas. These storms trained across the same area for most of the pre-dawn hours of the 30th as well as during the day. Large hail and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts were reported across portions of the region as well with isolated tornadoes reported across portions of Deep East Texas as well as west central Louisiana during the afternoon hours of March 30th.
