Severe Storms, Tornadoes Rip Through North Texas


A string of strong storms producing numerous tornadoes and massive hail ripped through northern Texas on Sunday afternoon and into the nighttime hours.

Reports of “large and extremely dangerous” tornadoes near Rio Vista and Grandview, Texas, approximately 25 miles south of Fort Worth, left behind reported damage, including damage to homes in nearby Cleburne and possible barn and home structures in Rio Vista. As of early Monday morning, no injuries had been reported as a result of the possible tornado touchdowns, which occurred as a result of a series of slow-moving storms between 9pm and midnight CT.

Flash flooding resulted in multiple vehicles requiring rescue, and Highway 174 near Cleburne was covered in 10 inches of water, according to local reports out of Johnson County, the hardest hit location.

Early Monday morning, over 33,000 customers in east Texas were without power.

At least 19 tornadoes were reported by the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) on Sunday, with potentially more after local National Weather Service offices conduct storm surveys later on Monday.

As of early Monday morning, the primary line of storms had moved away from the area and off to the east.

WeatherNation will have more on these storms as the situation unfolds.
