On Tuesday, June 15, National Weather Service meteorologists conducted a damage survey across portions of West Odessa that experienced significant wind damage the late Monday afternoon.
Based on the damage and corresponding radar imagery, it was determined that the damage across West Odessa was indicative of a straight line wind event. The following image from 5:17 pm CDT shows the primary area of damage and the severe thunderstorm that impacted the area.
Within this outlined area, a broad swath of damaging south winds (winds from the south) produced a large spectrum of different damage results. Structures more susceptible to damage due to orientation normal to the wind, and also those homes constructed of less protective materials, sustained more significant wind damage. Two mobile homes were completely destroyed. Other homes sustained a total loss of their roof structure. In these cases, based on the sustained damage and the type of construction, localized wind speeds of 75 to 85 mph likely occurred.
