EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - We have seen pictures from the ground of some tornado damage but we took Chopper 7 up Thursday to give you some aerial views.

In Canton, along I-20 at Highway 19, businesses are damaged. About half a mile away debris littered the area around nearby homes. Power crews were out restoring electricity where trees had toppled over onto power lines.

In Waskom near the Louisiana border, we found significant damage along I-20 near mile marker 628. There several homes were blown apart, scattering debris for over a mile. One man was on top of his roof as we flew over, sweeping debris off the top of his house. Trees were uprooted and toppled over, and while both lanes of I-20 were moving, debris littered the freeway.
