No major damage had been reported to local officials as a result of the overnight storm April 4, 2022. Aside from the deluge which displaced a few flower blooms, loose soil and small vegetation, Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County seem to have weathered the spring storm relatively unscathed.
Hopkins County Fire Marshal Andy Endsley said county officials had received reports of one tree down in Precinct 4, and crews had removed it by midmorning Tuesday. Most county roads were passable, even those with a very small amount of water running over them.
FM 71 at the river did have water issues, which occurs pretty much any time the area received an appreciable amount of precipitation. Most of the flood was to the north of Hopkins County, however. Only one road, County Road 3518 south in Precinct 3, was reported to be covered with high water for the overnight storm.
Local and national electric provider maps showed no power outages at 10:15 a.m. Tuesday, April 5, 2022, for Hopkins County. And, KSST received only sporadic reports of light hail during the height of the overnight storm.
