Yeah a major storm came thru, a lot of lightning. Once it blew thru it was calm, but I would not have wanted to be out on the water when that storm came thru, especially with a 5 year old. Sad deal, prayers up for the family.

Very saddened to see this. The cover photo for the article on NBC 5 on facebook shows about a 10-12' alumacraft laying across the deck of the GW boat. You guys are right - the storm came through this part of town about 6:00 or so. I clocked a 60 mph gust at the house with lots of wind in the 40-50 mph range for about 30 minutes.

I did see where a homeowner found the dog alive. Said it was running up and down the shore trying to swim out into the lake. Sad

Edited because this weighs heavy on my heart - if you know them - sorry - but why in the HELL would you put your 5 year old child in that situation, let alone yourself? This storm was NOT a secret - it has been all over the news for 3 days! I've seen numerous people saying he hunted all the time and knew the lake well - so WHY? Tawakoni is down right deadly in wind half of what blew through with this storm - not to mention the ridiculous amount of lightning? In what appears to be a damn 12' alumnacraft.... I've seen no mention on if they boy was found with a PFD on, but I'm assuming likely not...there is not a single damn duck on this planet worth taking that kind of risk over...

Breaks my heart. We were out in nasty winds on the 30th, awful reminder of how real the danger can be. Praying for their loved ones.

Specific Tawak Safety note: Go slow within 100yds of the nearest tree you see on southern region out there, saw multiple strays right on the surface we'd never noticed that would've been bad at 15+mph
