December tornadoes rip through Texoma
(KTEN) – After over a month, another severe weather event rocked Texoma December 13. Tornadoes ripped through portions of North Texas and southern Oklahoma starting in the early morning hours and lasting through lunchtime.
This latest severe weather event was thanks to a powerful upper level low pressure system that brought blizzard conditions to the Northern Plains along with several tornadoes in Texoma and the Deep South.
A brief EF-0 tornado touched down in Cooke County, remaining on the ground for around 200 yards. Damage was observed to a house in the Walnut Bend area.
An EF-2 tornado tracked through Lamar County in roughly the same area as the EF-4 tornado that gave Powderly, TX a direct hit on November 4. Multiple homes were damaged due to this tornado.
Damage was observed to several homes in the county with roofs ripped off and structures destroyed.
An EF-2 tornado traveled through Fannin County near Leonard and Trenton. The tornado touched down in Blue Ridge in Collin County and traveled into Fannin County, causing damage to multiple homes along with cars totaled and RVs flipped.
Thankfully, there is no more severe weather in the forecast and we will remain generally quiet into the Christmas holiday.
