Dirt Storm Rolls Into Oklahoma Panhandle and Points South- Pictures from Texhoma

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 14:02:01 CDT

Dirt Storm Rolls Into Oklahoma Panhandle and Points South- Pictures from Texhoma Oklahoma Panhandle residents faced a wall of dirt late Tuesday afternoon- and Randy Schreiner of Texhoma shot a series of pictures that he shared with us. The picture above was the wall headed for Texhoma- the pictures below show it getting closer and closer, until in the bottom photo, the town was enveloped. Schreiner writes that as the front moved through, the Goodwell Mesonet station recorded a top gust of 73 miles per hour.


Media reports in the Texas Panhandle are saying the wall of dirt from Colorado and Kansas was as much as a hundred miles wide. Forecaster Nicholas Fenner in Amarillo said that the storm threw dust about 2,000 feet into the air. Fenner says the storm reached as far north as Oklahoma Panhandle and as far south as Lubbock, Texas.
