HOUSTON – A strong line of storms that moved through our area early Wednesday pushed toward Louisiana by the late afternoon.
Most of Thursday’s severe weather stayed north of the city with small hail falling in the Conroe area, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.
During that time a severe thunderstorm warning was issued for Polk, San Jacinto, and Liberty counties.
In Shepherd the storm caused drainage ditches to overflow into yards, and in a community hit by a tornado earlier this week, it certainly rattled nerves.
“Rain, lightning and the wind got pretty bad, blowing limbs down and stuff,” said area resident William Caruthers.
Elsewhere, not much rain reached Houston, but there were showers along the coast in Galveston.
