Photos and Video of Sunday’s Tornado in Hockley County
Across Lubbock, and the South Plains, we're into the part of the summer in which the sun will stay out until 9 o'clock at night. On Sunday, that proved to be beneficial for spotting a tornado which formed in Hockley County.
Sunday evening around 8:30pm social media began to light up with photos and videos of the funnel cloud and tornado in Hockley County.
Talk 1340's Ryan Hyatt lives in Hockley County, and here are some of the first photos of the tornado, that were shared with him, once it formed:

If you have any photos or videos of Sunday's tornado we'd love to see them. You can e-mail photos to us firstname.lastname@example.org - You can share both photos and videos to KFYO on Twitter and KFYO on Facebook or to Awesome 98 on Facebook too.
Another reason why we always try to stay 'weather aware' out here in West Texas: there was not a Tornado Watch in effect for Hockley County when the funnel cloud and subsequent tornado formed on Sunday. Again proving how quickly the weather can change out here in West Texas.
