Daily Historical Weather for April 20
A tornado struck 5 miles north of Cyril on this day in 1967. A pickup truck, driving along State Highway 8, stalled because of the wind, then was lifted by the tornado, turned around to face the opposite direction, and set down again, without damage. The driver, who described the funnel as being "full of mud", was uninjured.
On April 20, 1972, severe thunderstorms struck the western parts of north Texas. Near Bonita, in Montague County, flat hailstones, four to five inches in diameter, and one-inch thick, did extensive damage to autos, roofs, and windows.
