Severe weather across East Texas

Several of you helped us get a sense of just how dangerous today's severe weather was. 

From hail to funnel clouds, we have it all...thanks to those who sent in images and video using See It, Snap It, Send It on 

Residents in Sulphur Springs sought cover from a forming funnel cloud that almost touched the ground. 

Our very own Grant Dade captured an amazing video of the clouds, and viewer Jana Dodd sent in two pictures of different angles of the funnel cloud. 

In Canton, you could see the dark rolling clouds moving towards Canton Trade Days.

A viewer sent us video of similar clouds in White Oak.

Longview viewers sent us pictures of ominous clouds in a dark sky that later led to hours of rain and harsh flooding.

One Longview viewer was able to capture video with the sirens going off in the background.

In many parts of East Texas, the rain and wind brought hail.

Golf ball sized hail was found in Lake Fork and Pickton, while marble sized hail was found in Emory earlier this afternoon. 

Smaller dime sized hail hit Tyler later in the evening. 

A dark sky hovered over Highway 19 and clouds in Mt. Pleasant buried the sun. 

Sandra Williams sent us a video of Teague Park in Longview, where the skies were just as gray.
