It rained heavily, for example, in Argyle, Texas. The water flooded the pools and flooded lawns and buildings.
It turned out, however, that the greatest damage was caused by hail.
There have been a lot of videos on social media showing the formation of the storm and its subsequent effects.
Due to the dangerous weather, one of the local airlines was forced to cancel at least 30 percent of scheduled flights. Problems with traffic control were reported on the remaining flights.
