This right moving supercell thunderstorm which had already caused fatalities and injuries along with lots of damage in Granbury, TX, located in Hood County, was headed southeast. The tornado associated with this storm was also headed southeast. Then suddenly the tornado made a hard left hand turn and started moving northward and into Cleburne. In all of the years that I have been watching radar, and storm chasing, I've never seen a storm do this before. This just proves that you never know what a tornado will do. 

Check out this animated radar loop courtesy of Storm Chaser Nick Nolte...NickNolteWx.com. pay close attention to the Storm Relative Velocity Loop (SRV) in the lower left hand corner. Notice the sudden jolt northward of the apparent large tornado.

Grapefruit Size Hail Near Gainesville, TX Yesterday.

At least 6 people are reported to have been killed by tornadoes in north Texas last night. 14 people may be missing in Granbury, Texas. Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds is reporting that at least 28 people were treated for their injuries from the tornado at a local hospital, and another 100 people were injured. 

As many as 10 tornadoes may have touched down yesterday evening leaving 250 people homeless. 

Hundreds of homes were damaged in Cleburne, Texas and at least two dozen were destroyed by the mile wide tornado as it tolled into town from the south last night. 

These numbers will likely change today as rescuers search through the debris and ruble.

WHEN WILL THE NEXT CME ARRIVE? A magnetic filament in the sun's southrn hemisphere erupted on Oct. 4th, hurling part of itself into space. The emerging CME will pass mostly to the south of our planet, but a fraction could graze Earth's magnetic field on Oct. 8th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for minor geomagnetic storms and auroras on that date.
