Local Weather History For July 2nd...
1967 (2nd-3rd): Rather unusual for early July, a total of four tornadoes developed late this night throughout Swisher,
Castro and Lamb Counties. The first tornado occurred at 11:34 PM northwest of Tulia causing minor damage to a public
school building. About 15 trees were uprooted, 32 windows in the school were blown out and several elevator doors twisted
by the wind. Later, two tornadoes occurred in open farmland ten miles west of Happy without causing any damage. A funnel
cloud nearby was also reported, but failed to touch the ground. A final tornado was spotted two miles east of Littlefield
over open farmland as well and did not cause any known damage.
