Afternoon heating gave way to a couple of strong thunderstorms Thursday afternoon across East Texas. Severe thunderstorms were reported in Sabine County and Angelina County.
Around 3pm, one strong thunderstorm formed over southern and central Sabine County prompting the National Weather Service to issue a Severe Thunderstorm Warning. That storm produced dime sized hail for almost 20 minutes near Pineland. Doppler radar estimates show as much as 3.0" to 3.5" may have fallen over parts of the county.
