Storms Again Batter Murray County Areas With Hail, Wind, Rain

For a second week in a row, Murray County was battered when severe storms moved in from the west, dropping baseball size hail, torrential rain, high wind and even a reported funnel cloud that formed and moved west from Stephens County. Power outages were also reported in several counties including Murray and Carter.

The storm began moving in the area just after dark last Saturday. Some areas in southern Murray County received baseball size hail and there was even a reported tornado in the air just south of Davis.

No significant damage was reported in the area, but tree limbs were blown over and minor street flooding occurred in the low lying areas.

The storm formed in the late evening hours and moved west and southwest, eventually impacting Davis, Turner Falls and Sulphur with high wind and about two to three inches of rain. A radar detected funnel moved west out of Stephens County to just south of Davis and to Dougherty and finally north of Tishomingo. Although no reports of significant damage were reported, storm chasers followed the funnel cloud with a pronounced hook echo across several southern Oklahoma counties.
