NewsChannel10.com - Amarillo - Operations Manager of West Texas Mesonet with Texas Tech University Wesley Burgett says, 'We've had one tornado hit up here in McClain in 2007. It went right over the station. Produced 128 miles an hour wind. And that data was relayed directly to the weather service office. Most of our wind data is based on severe storms that are coming in like high winds with blowing dirt that they can use to predict what it's going to be like in the city of Amarillo.'
