Before striking Crockett, the “twister” which accompanied rains in Texas ravaged the town of Teague. Dan Dobbs suffered a broken back when a wall caved in. One hundred homes were wrecked. Mayor S.W. Robertson estimated property loss at $100,000.

Falling timbers killed the aged victim of the tornado at Crockett. A nephew of Crenshaw, Harvey Bobbitt, was injured seriously as was his wife when they were trapped in the wreckage of the home.
