Local Weather History For July 17th...
2009: Scattered thunderstorms developed over the western Texas Panhandle and the eastern plains of New Mexico late this
afternoon before evolving into a large convective complex by early evening across the western South Plains. An embedded
high-precipitation supercell developed within the complex and tracked over portions of Parmer, Bailey, and Cochran
Counties. This storm was accompanied by large hail and a broad swath of extreme winds. Damage to cotton crops and
utilities was widespread, with at least 400 electrical poles downed by the winds. The most significant structural damage
occurred in Morton, where the Texas Tech University West Texas Mesonet recorded a peak gust of 93 mph and a number of
homes and businesses sustained heavy damage. In addition, a band of severe winds developed in the wake of the departing
convection as pressure gradients increased dramatically well behind the storms. These high winds characterized by gusts up
to 70 mph resulted in tree, utility, and minor damages in Yoakum County. No injuries were reported. Total economical
losses were estimated to exceed $5.75M and some county-level authorities applied for state disaster declarations.
