Wednesday, was a marathon day of severe weather across the South Plains.

The first bout of severe weather developed after 8a in the northeast part of the region.  Heavy, soaking rains caused flash flood warnings in the northeast counties.  According to the Texas Tech Mesonet, almost 2 inches of rain was recorded in Turkey and over 3 inches of rain in Quitaque.

This prompted Flash Flood Advisories to be in effect during the middle of the day.

The second part of the severe weather started to develop after 3:30p in Eastern New Mexico and the western South Plains. Hail, up to baseball size fell, in Muleshoe and Sundown. Severe Thunderstorms also developed in Dawson, Gaines and Terry counties.

Also, at least one tornado touched down in southern Hockley County near Sundown.  You can a see a photo of one of the tornadoes here in this article. The storm caused wind and hail damage to some homes and businesses in Hockley County. KFYO News also received a report of some power outages late Wednesday evening in Hockley County.

Almost 1 inch of rain was recorded at the Texas Tech Mesonet site in Levelland.  The KFYO Studios in southwest Lubbock received 0.52 inches of rain Wednesday evening.
