Major Flash Flood Strikes Haltom City

June 18, 2007 at 10:42 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Overnight thunderstorms dropped flooding rains on parts of North Texas overnight.

Haltom City appears to have suffered the most. A mobile home park along 377 near 820 has been devastated.

The storms developed as warm, rich gulf air moved over North Texas. An upper low was the trigger, but its not the normal TX upper low, this one is more of a semi-tropical upper low. Usually, those produce the heaviest rain during the night, and that makes the flooding worse, since it can strike while people are sleeping.

This is another reason to encourage North Texans to have a weather radio that will sound an alarm if a warning is issued.
