Storm causes damage in Marshall

A brief storm does some damage in one East Texas city earlier tonight. It happened around 5:20 this evening in a Marshall neighborhood just north of East Texas Baptist university with the heaviest damage being near Van Zandt and Olive streets. Crews were busy trying to repair downed lines, after the storm came roaring through earlier. Neighbors say they saw brisk winds pushing the trees back and forth. Power poles were snapped, and live power lines sagged to the ground. The lines didn't contact and building or cars. The trees that fell, landed adjacent to fences and homes, causing no damage. Power was knocked out to numerous homes, but crews were busy repairing the lines. No one was hurt.
