Today in Weather History

Good afternoon, everyone!

On this day, in 1999, Texas witnessed a remarkable hailstorm that stretched as far as two miles wide. These storms had impressive downdrafts with winds peaking around 80 miles per hour, causing for golfball-sized hail to pelt houses, breaking windows and impairing wooden structures. Fortunately, no lives were lost. However, up to 60 families were displaced due to damage to households, mainly mobile homes.

Have a great day!
