The "Cap" Finally Broke and the End Result...

The proverbial cap finally weakened and gave way to a significant severe weather outbreak for East Texas on Monday night.

As a result, we had nearly 100 reports of severe eather across North Central, Northeast, and Deep East Texas.

We had everything from large hail to damaging winds, and even isolated tornadoes.

As of this posting, we have had two tornadoes confirmed in and near Wells around 9:45pm Monday evening. At this point, no significant injuries have been reported.

In addition to those two tornado reports, we also had reports of golf ball size hail in Zavalla, and damaging winds in Brookeland.

The National Weather Service will more than likely be surveying storm damage in the days ahead. As they do so, we may get more reports of tornadoes than what we have confirmed at this point.
