Severe weather moved across Smith Co. leaving behind power outages, downed trees

Posted: Updated:

 

UPDATE: (KYTX) - Thunderstorms last night in Arkansas left boundaries which made their way into East Texas this afternoon and combined with daytime heat to produce thunderstorms which moved southward through the area.

Thunderstorms left behind some decent rainfall. We collected two-thirds of an inch at the KYTX CBS 19 studio at Troup Highway and ESE Loop 323 in Tyler. Activity will continue to move southward this afternoon and decrease as we lose daytime heating this evening.

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Smith County expired at 3 p.m. There were reports of up to quarter-size hail near Lindale. Lightning knocked out power in the Swan area and north Tyler.

It will be hot again Friday with a high near 100 degrees and a 20% chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

 


TYLER (KYTX) - Skywarn reports power off at Swan Lake and N. Tyler loop area. VERY heavy rain and lightning. Lightning hit power line caused fire 2 miles south Lindale.

A large tree has been reported down at the intersection of Hwy 69 North and Ann Campbell Road near Tyler Pipe.


Traffic lights and power are out around Hwy 271 and the north loop in Tyler.
