The 1754 Jarrell tornado was a very destructive tornado recorded thanks to its violent history being discovered by dating the extensive ground scouring in the area following the extreme tornado. The weather that day is thought to have been hot and humid, giving rise to severe thunderstorms in the area, until the tornado dropped, likely in the evening hours, killing over 50 people, although the true number remains unknown.
