PASADENA, TEXAS, Jan. 25, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Severe weather danger shifts east after tornadoes hit Texas. A severe weather threat is set to move east across the state following the tornadoes that hit Texas Monday. The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has released a tornado watch for parts of the state.
A series of storms are moving northeast toward the Brazos Valley and DFW metroplex. They could generate damaging winds and large hail. This could lead to severe flooding and power outages.
In the DFW area, the storms have caused hundreds of flights to be cancelled. More than 3 inches of rain fell at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. A wind gust of 63 miles per hour was recorded at the airport during the storm. For this reason, the national fire service USPA Nationwide Security has deployed a team when the Pasadena Fire Watch Service guards the area.
Tornadoes were reported in the Houston and Dallas areas, as well as several other cities across the state. One person died in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward, where a tornado hit before 8 p.m., damaging several homes and businesses. A tree fall also occurred in Choctaw County, Oklahoma.
At least 31 tornadoes have been reported in Texas. A storm system will sweep across the state through Tuesday. Though this system is expected to weaken, it could still bring high winds and damaging tornadoes.
The tornadoes that ripped through Texas on Monday prompted tornado watching in east and inland Southeast Texas. The National Weather Service’s storm forecast center is expected to issue tornado watches until 3 a.m. Some parts of Northwest Arkansas and Louisiana are monitored by tornadoes.
“USPA Nationwide Security stands ready to assist our Pasadena neighbors with 24×7 fire watches to replace their downed firefighting systems,” said Brian Fitzgibbons, Director of Security and Fire Watch.
