If #AA1897 flew through/near this rapidly-developing storm in SE New Mexico, 1-minute #GOES16 imagery revealed a pulsing updraft with a -80ºC cloud top temperature right before it produced 2.50 inch hail on the ground https://t.co/jawBk8nd6F #nmwx pic.twitter.com/hPtvnKaalH— Scott Bachmeier (@CIMSS_Satellite) June 4, 2018
Here is an animation showing two mesoscale convective complexes (#MCS) merging in Texas last night June 4, 2018. The V-shaped notch shown in our previous post is the MCS on the right, which continued to move west and collided with a larger MCS coming from the west. pic.twitter.com/DYxlUzQarQ— NWS WPC (@NWSWPC) June 4, 2018
Follow the (terrifying) track of American Airlines Flight 1897 dodging destructive hail storms before a forced landing at El Paso #Texas on June 4th.

#GOESEast satellite captured multiple powerful thunderstorms over #Texas in the early hours of yesterday morning, or as the @NWSWPC would say, multiple mesoscale convective complexes with storm tops near 65,000 feet!

Wild Night In SE NM & West Texas.
(Blog Updated 5:30 AM MDT Wednesday, June 6, 2018).
The pilot clearly was struggling trying to deviate around those severe thunderstorms. Radar tops on those storms rose up to 65,000' and the storm east of Loving had a temperature of -80ºC or -112ºF as is was dropping tennis ball size hail on St Hwy 128.
Another infrared satellite loop shows the merger of the MCS that moved out of Southeastern New Mexico into West Texas with a MCS over South-Central Texas.

(Times Are In MDT).
24-Hour Radar Estimated Rainfall Totals.
Radar Estimated 3" - 5" Of Rainfall East Of Loving.
This May Be A Little To High Due To Hail Contamination.

Damage West Of Hagerman In Chaves County.
The Hagerman area (especially West of Hagerman off Sage Brush Valley Road) was hit hard by the storm last night. There are several people that are in need of assistance in recovery from damage to their homes and property. The emergency respond team from Red Cross has been activated and is helping assists several families. We could use help from anyone willing to assist. Two families homes were completely destroyed. Several RVs were flipped on their sides or upside down. The clean up for the families will be difficult and assistance would be greatly appreciated. We will help attempt to organize a clean up. The families have lost the majority of their belongings and little to nothing could be recovered from the two homes. Donations would be greatly appreciated along with any help cleaning up or repairing damages. If anyone is interested please contact the Hagerman Police Department and we will attempt to organize a fundraiser and or clean up to help this community. Unfortunately several families did not have insurance so they will not get anything replaced. I will get a list and post tomorrow of who could use what assistance with repairs and a list of needs from the families.
