Video and Photos of the May 4, 2022 Tornadoes in Lockett and Crowell, Texas


We had yet another wild day of weather in Texas and Oklahoma yesterday (May 4).

This storm season has been one of the worst I can remember – and I grew up here in Tornado Alley, so that’s saying something.

Yesterday’s storms spawned several tornadoes across both states with a large tornado hitting Lockett, Texas in Southwestern Wilbarger County, about an hour away from Wichita Falls.

They followed up with drone and ground footage of the aftermath.

Stephanie GirlNextDoor shared excellent footage of the tornado that formed near Crowell, Texas as well as the aftermath of the Lockett tornado.

Storm Chaser Brad Arnold described the tornado that hit Lockett as an “absolute beast”.

Will Leverett shared on Twitter that he had seen a total of eight tornadoes during a chase that spanned 600 miles yesterday.

Several other chasers shared pics of the tornado and its aftermath.

We still have a way to go here in this storm season. Be sure to keep your eye on the sky and stay safe.
