A storm rolled through Red Oak and much of Montgomery County before 5 p.m., causing high winds, rain and even hail. The hail ranged in size from pea-sized to quarter-sized and possibly larger in some spots.
Parts of Northwest Montgomery County were in a Tornado Warning, mainly those in the Elliott and Grant areas. No tornadoes however were reported. There were tornado warnings in counties to the North of Red Oak, affecting cities such as Atlantic, Harlan and Denison.
There is a tornado warning in effect now in Union County, which includes the town of Creston. The National Weather Service reported that law enforcement in Union County reported a tornado near Creston, moving Northeast at 55 miles per hour.
Montgomery County was in a tornado watch, but that has since been canceled.
Temperatures during the afternoon were warm, as they had reached the upper 70s. Temps have since cooled down into the 60s and will continue to cool down as the low for tonight is expected to be 39.
Sidenote: I of course was able to upload a picture of the hail. If you have any hail photos, send them our way to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post them on the website.
