CANTON, TX (KLTV) -

Storms rolled through East Texas Wednesday morning, causing damage to a local business.

The old Hilliard Hardware Store in Canton can be seen boarded up, after storms caused damage to the business.

Rachel Delira said she heard a loud noise this morning that sounded like thunder.

“All I saw was the ceiling, like, hanging down after it had busted the sheet rock and came through the window. You could see parts of the ceiling hanging inside the building,” she said.

“When I came outside, all the glass from the windows were all busted out. The ceiling caved in and you could actually see the sky,” said Samantha Sparger, who works next door.

The building is closed and was vacant at the time.

The glass was blown onto a nearby vehicle, but did not cause damage.
