Severe Weather Risk Increases for Wichita Falls and Surrounding Areas Tuesday Night

There's a storm chaser traffic jam in Tornado Alley

In a Storm Team 9 Special Report: Severe Weather and your Safety, we look back at the year so far.

A strengthening storm system ejecting eastward into the Plains will serve as the trigger for these storms.

Severe thunderstorm watch #217 remains in effect for much of northern IL and southern Wisconsin until 2 am.

Earlier Tuesday, the weather service said Eastern Nebraska was at an enhanced risk for severe weather with damaging winds of 60-80 miles per hour and hail the primary threats in the Fremont area.

Much of the damage was reported south and east of Fremont.

Tornadoes may threaten the cities and surrounding communities of Hays and Dodge City, Kansas; Woodward and Elk City, Oklahoma; and Childress, Texas.




Dale Daily, 61, said he heard the warning siren about a half-hour before the tornado hit the mobile home park. A spotty tornado can not be ruled out either as storms initially develop.

Some of the hailstones from the most violent storms could reach the size of baseballs.

"This could be another substantial event similar to Tuesday", Strait said.

The view from the Haymarket on Tuesday night. He said his sister also had a 2-month-old grandson, Nolan, in the home when the storm hit, and they had nowhere to go but the bathtub. The area stretches from the Texas Panhandle through Oklahoma, western Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa into Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Since 1 to 3 inches of rain fell Tuesday night into early this morning, any additional heavy rainfall could produce some isolated flash flooding Wednesday afternoon.

Storm chances increase in the Dallas-Fort Worth area overnight, with damaging wind gusts possible along a squall line that will move into the western counties of North Texas after midnight.
