Severe Thunderstorm Rolls Thru Amarillo And Causes Damage Around The City
Today a severe thunderstorm rolled thru Amarillo. Around 4:30 today we went from warm weather and clear skies to black clouds taking over the skies. Storms rapidly came thru with wind gusts in excess of 60 mph. With the dark skies hovering over during the drive time home for most the winds caused lots of dirt to kick up which made bad conditions to drive in due to visibility.
The winds were so strong it caused many power outages around the city affecting almost 6500 customers. Many trees and fences have been knocked down.
On my way home I seen this billboard knocked down off of Paramount & Western due to the high winds.
