Most of Ennis looked skyward Tuesday as sirens blared and a series of strong thunderstorm cells threatened Ellis County for the second day.

Over a three-hour period, five storm cells that the National Weather Service classified as severe crossed within 20 miles of Ennis. Two of the five cells entered city limits, with one skirting the city’s southern edge, said City Manager Steve Howerton.

Maximum wind speeds in Ennis’ city limits reached 50 miles per hour, and rainfall accumulation was in the neighborhood of 0.1 inch, according to data from the city’s weather monitoring sites at the Central and No. 2 Fire Stations.
