Thunderstorms rolled through Amarillo on Friday afternoon, bringing heavy rains, hail, and lightning.

The storm rolled in just before 4pm in Amarillo, with hail slamming several neighborhoods. The storm caused some power outages, according to Xcel Energy’s outage map, and at least one fire south of Amarillo. Several front yards were covered with hail in a way reminiscent of snow. There were also multiple neighborhoods with trees showing fewer leaves than when the storm began thanks to the rain and hail.

Emergency vehicles could be seen responding to events during the storm.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
