The Lone Star State has received a major slap in the face after the Holiday celebrations as a powerful storm system rampaged through the country from the Pacific Ocean that brought a lot of rain and snow from the Pacific Northwest to the Colorado Rockies. Enough to gain the name, Winter Storm Goliath.
The warm side of Goliath brought severe weather into North Texas over the weekend, with Saturday Night being the busiest as it produced numerous tornadoes into the area, mostly surrounding the Dallas-Fort Worth area with the Dallas suburb of Garland being the hardest. The tornado that hit the city was rated an EF-4 in the Enhanced Fujita Scale and the death toll is 11 people and expected to rise. The same system rampaged through Eastern Texas on Sunday, putting the Southeast region of Texas in the "Enhanced" level, prompting fears for the region. Of course, no serious effects...if you live in the City of Houston and what not. If you live around the Eastern Texas, Northern Louisiana, or the Southern side of Arkansas, you might be having a crazy day with these storms. Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, declared Disaster Areas for four counties in North Texas as the storms pass by.
The wintry side of Goliath brought major snowfall in the West Side of Texas, including the panhandle, which were issued Blizzard Warnings from the Texas Panhandle to the Eastern Side of New Mexico. The system brought snow on Saturday for El Paso, affecting the Sun Bowl between the University of Miami and Washington State. But as the storm system begins to leave Texas, it set it's eyes to the North from the Central Plains to New England.
