Heavy Storm Hits Texas: Learn How To Stay Safe And Prepared During A Blizzard


Tornadoes touched down in Texas and Louisiana as a powerful storm system that dumped heavy snow in California moved eastward Thursday, knocking out power to more than 150,000 customers and forcing the cancellation of hundreds of flights into and out of Dallas.

Tornado warnings issued for Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding areas of Texas expired by late afternoon but strong winds and hail continued, according to the National Weather Service.

About 100 miles east of Dallas, a twister that hit the ground near the small town of Fouke moved northeast toward Texarkana at 55 mph, the weather service said.

The NWS Storm Prediction Center reported that a severe thunderstorm watch was in effect through midnight Thursday for parts of southeast Texas, including Houston and College Station.

Tips To Get Prepared And Staying Safe In A Blizzard

Remove The Snow Frequently

When a winter storm occurs, the most immediate maintenance needed is snow and ice removal. Even a few inches of snow accumulating outside your home can be inconvenient at best and dangerous at worst. A more severe winter storm can exacerbate the problem, making ice and snow removal even more critical.

A Backup Power Source

Using a generator to help with winter heating and keep appliances running during a winter storm blackout is a good idea, but make sure you use it safely. Keep an adequate amount of gas to keep the generator running for long hours. It’s a good idea to keep the generator at least 20 ft from the house to prevent the accumulation of Carbon Monoxide (CO) in and around the house.

Resolve The Threats

Any potential flaws that could lead to damage should be carefully monitored.

It’s critical to pay attention to the structural integrity of your house and seek weak spots that could lead to damage. Even if your structure appears to be in good condition now, consider what could happen if high winds, heavy snow, ice, or sleet hit. These severe weather conditions may cause damage to your house if it has vulnerabilities.
