Refugio County Chief Deputy Sheldon Wiginton said he talked to weather officials at the NWS Monday morning, and they had an assessment team determine that the storm was a straight-line wind storm with no tornadic motion.
Wiginton said the estimate of the wind’s speed, although it is only a guess, was more than 100 mph.
Asked if any injuries were reported, Wiginton said, “Not that we know of. But there’s lots of property damage.”
He said after the storm, roofs were on U.S. Highway 77, and Jugs and Jiggers and the Dollar General had damage among others.
Numerous limbs and trees were down, including mesquites and oaks.
By Monday, July 1, much of the debris had been picked up and lay by city streets for pickup.
