Tornado Sweeps Across Fields in Northern Texas

A tornado was spotted ripping through fields in northern Texas on April 23.

Brenda Dreyer shot this video southwest of Vernon, near the Texas-Oklahoma border.

“Amazing storm to chase and capture photos and videos of,” she wrote of the experience.

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a warning on April 23 for a “severe thunderstorm over the TX panhandle.” Vernon was among the most-at-risk areas for tornado activity.

Severe weather has continued to batter the region, with the NWS on April 27 warning of increased storm coverage in “western north TX and southwestern OK.”

“Large hail continues to be the main concern, with heavy rain and strong winds likely,” the NWS said. Credit: Brenda Dreyer via Storyful
