Rio Grande Valley Sees Extremely Active Early 2023 Storm Season

The Rio Grande Valley has been subjected to a series of severe weather events over the course of just over a month, showcasing the vulnerability of the region. Starting on April 21, 2023, a hailstorm affected the cities of Penitas, La Joya, and McAllen, leaving behind significant property damage. The situation deteriorated a week later on April 28, when a major windstorm decimated parts of the Rio Grande Valley, with wind gusts reaching an alarming 100 MPH in some areas.

Then, in mid-May, disaster struck again. On May 13, an EF-1 tornado touched down in Laguna Heights, causing widespread destruction and leaving many residents in shock.
