Episode Narrative The 20th and 21st of February brought a round of locally heavy rainfall to the Interstate 20 corridor during the mid morning, then activity shifted to severe weather by afternoon and evening. Numerous severe thunderstorms occurred across central and southern sections of the area which brought large hail and damaging winds to many locations. The severe weather eventually evolved into heavy rain and flash flooding across central sections of the area as thunderstorms repeatedly moved over the same locations.
Event Narrative Locally heavy rain, between 2 and 3 inches, caused Walker Road to flood.
