At 3:26 p.m., a Tornado Watch was issued for the majority of the South Plains including Midland and Amarillo areas. Shortly thereafter at 4:55 p.m., a Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for Hale and Lamb County.

A Severe Weather Outbreak quickly escalated after that as multiple watches/warnings were issued for the rest of the evening.

The first report of a tornado came in at 7:46 p.m., four miles East-Southeast of Petersburg. NewsChannel 11 Stormchasers continued to follow the storms on the ground while Chief Meteorologist John Robison tracked their path until midnight, when viewers were out of harms way.

Baseball size hail (up to 2.75” in diameter), high winds, tornadoes and numerous lightning strikes were attributed to numerous damage reports of downed trees, roofs ripped off buildings and power lines across the Northeastern South Plains.
