Storms Bring Heavy Rain, Tornado Reports Across Texas

Severe storms are bringing heavy rain, hail and reports of tornadoes to West Texas and the Panhandle.

John Cockrell, a meteorologist in the Amarillo office of the National Weather Service, said multiple tornadoes were reported in the Panhandle's Donley and Ochiltree counties.

Cockrell said the weather service hadn't received any reports of significant damage or injuries. Crews will likely survey the area Monday.

Tornados were also reported further south in Hall and Glasscock counties, where there were no immediate reports of damage.

A tornado watch was in effect until 10 p.m. Sunday for 46 Texas counties across a swath of the state from the Panhandle to the Mexico border. The watch also extended into parts of Oklahoma and Kansas.

The Storm Prediction Center warned severe thunderstorms were expected to continue Sunday night across a broad portion of the Plains.
