A mile-wide tornado touched down in north-central Texas as a storm system swept through with large hail and damaging winds. The storm knocked out power to more than 30,000 people in Texas, according to online reports compiled from local power companies.
Storm chasers Spencer Basoco and Lawrence McEwenHuge were pummeled by hail while chasing near Stephenville, Texas. The hail busted the windshield with ease. Hail was larger than grapefruit or softball size. They took refuge where they could under trees and next to a building.
