San Perlita Power Outages Caused by Weather


April 4, 2020 - Thunderstorm Wind

A mini-supercell thunderstorm rolled through central and southeastern Willacy County a little more than an hour after sunrise, and produced damaging winds near San Perlita and on nearby ranches around 830 AM CDT. One residence in San Perlita, fully exposed to the northwest, sustained significant damage when its poorly constructed roof lifted off. The residence was a mobile home with a separate addition on a pier/block foundation. Nearby damage was noted along an 5.28 mile stretch of State Highway 186, with more than a dozen wooden power poles broken, uprooted, or leaning. Nearly all of the broken poles showed notable rot at the breakpoint, and others were only anchored in shallow soil. In total, county Emergency Management mentioned a total of 26 poles were damaged. The survey revealed a range of estimated wind speeds from 61 to 70 mph.
