Storms Moved Through Saturday Night

Strong thunderstorms prompted several severe thunderstorm warnings across East Texas on Saturday. These storms were associated with an outflow boundary. The outflow boundary, which is a small-scale cold front, collided with an unstable environment to produce dangerous winds and heavy rains.

The National Weather Service sighted the following damage reports for Saturday evening:

  • Power lines down on CR 241 southwest of Beckville in Panola County.
  • Trees down in west of Many in Sabine Parish.
  • A tree fell on a house near Joaquin in Shelby County.
