Thursday afternoon became a severe weather event across the South Plains and Eastern New Mexico.

The first tornado touched down around 2 o’clock near Floydada (pictured). The storm in Floyd County produced hail up to golf ball size and moved south into Crosby County. Once in Crosby County the thunderstorm produced winds over 75 mph and blowing dust.

Winds over 40 mph caused damage in Lubbock . The roof of a warehouse was blown off at 18th Street and Avenue Q.

Another storm complex caused damage in-and-around Jayton. Officials in Jayton told Al Harden of KAMC 28 they thought a tornado caused damage in their community.

A Tornado Watch continues until 10p for the South Plains and Texas Panhandle.
