Jim Campbell, a data acquisition program manager with the National Weather Service in Brownsville, said the storm was actually two storms that had originated from Kenedy County. As the storm moved south it made most of its damage in McAllen, with reports of five inch rain. Campbell said it was difficult to gage the level of hail that had fallen through the western parts of Mission and McAllen. Weather officials who had been investigating the storm in McAllen had heard and seen reports of the hail reaching people's knees, he said.
