Beckham County in western Oklahoma was pounded with large hail back on this day in 2008. Thunderstorms developed in the Texas Panhandle and moved east through the evening hours, developing into supercells. Baseball-size hail was the greatest impact, with damage to windows and businesses reported.
During the afternoon of September 5, 1965, severe thunderstorms crossed southwest Oklahoma. The storms brought torrential rain, up to five inches in one hour at some locations, which caused street flooding in Martha, Blair, and Hester. Some residents had water up to their porches. The storms also produced strong winds that caused major damage in Blair.
