CARTWRIGHT, Okla. (KTEN) – A line of (mostly) sub-severe storms moved through Texoma during the overnight hours from June 4 to June 5. Storms packed winds of up to 58 mph in Gainesville, Texas, up to quarter-size hail, and flash flooding.

Due to Texoma’s already saturated grounds, winds were able to uproot trees in Texoma. One tree fell on a house in Cartwright, Oklahoma.
