Local Weather History For February 19th...
2004: A regional high wind event and dust storm struck the South Plains this day as westerly winds increased to 40 to 50
mph sustained with gusts measured as high as 63 mph. A tractor trailer was overturned by the wind near Tulia resulting in
one injury. Minor wind damage was reported across the South Plains including power lines blown down, power poles blown
down, minor damage to homes, and trees blown down. Blowing dust reduced the visibility to near zero at times on the
Caprock. This dangerous low visibility contributed to several multiple car accidents. The worst car accident occurred
about six miles northwest of Post on U.S. Highway 84 in Garza County and involved 25 vehicles. Two fatalities resulted
from this accident along with twelve injuries. A four car accident occurred on U.S. Highway 87 and Woodrow Road in
southern Lubbock County and a five car accident occurred on Interstate 27 eight miles north of Abernathy in Hale County.
