Storms in Central & East Texas (incl Tarrant County)

March 20, 2012 03:15:31

A huge storm system is making it’s way Northeast across South Central, Northeast, and North Central  Texas.  Heavy winds, heavy rainfall, and Thunderstorms have hit many areas as the storm continues.  Many areas were (and more continue to be) under Tornado Watches.  Some even under Tornado Warnings.

This video was taken in front of my home in South Fort Worth (just 2 miles North of the Crowley border) right around 8 or 9pm in the evening of March 19.   http://youtu.be/wbEQuZd6zE8

The lightening continues, even now in the wee hours, to light up the sky at times and the following Thunderclap can best be described as sounding somewhat like a not too far off freight train (though there must be a good 20+ miles = 1 sec/1 mile rule).  The rain continues to fall steadily as it was doing in the video.  This is causing flooding in many areas.

I urge you to Stay Safe  as this Storm continues.  Watch for local weather alerts for your area.  some options are:

NOAA

Wunderground
