Local Weather History For May 25th...
1965: A strong tornado swirled through Motley County late this afternoon tearing down fences, splintering and uprooting
mesquite trees, but fortunately missed houses and farm buildings. This tornado traveled across Farm-to-Market Road 684
about 5.5 miles west of Roaring Springs as moved in a northerly direction. As the tornado crossed US Highway 70 west of
Matador, it finally retreated back into the clouds. Additional storms late this day produced hailstorms in Crosbyton and
Memphis where a combined $350,000 in damage. The hail in Crosbyton was described as very hard as golf ball size stones
bounced off pavement and into nearby windows shattering the glass. Storm doors and windows on the south side of numerous
residences were shattered. Mr. Percy Carr was struck on the head by a hailstone and required stitches to close a gash. A
hailswath measuring 20x3 miles struck Memphis causing $250,000 in damage to property. Some hailstones in Memphis reached
two inches in diameter and a portion of young crops in the area was lost.
