Damaging storm targets Denison
DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — Severe weather Thursday night hit Denison hard, with reports of hail and even a fire.
KTEN spoke with at least three people who saw golf ball- to baseball-sized hail. Homes, cars, and roads were damaged and covered with tree branches on Friday morning.
Denison firefighters responded to a home on South Myrick Street around 7 p.m. Thursday where the attic was ablaze. The fire marshal said it was triggered by a lightning strike.
Denison homeowner Adam Hulsey suffered severe hail damage to both his personal and work vehicles.
"Twenty-thousand dollars in damage on the Bronco, including the top being cracked and destroyed... every panel on it will have to be replaced," he said.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a Calera man died in a crash during the storms Thursday evening when he lost control of his vehicle on US 70 in Mead.
