High Winds, Hail Pound East Texas

Tuesday night's storm brought wind and hail to parts of East Texas.  On Wednesday, the cleanup began. 

The worst scene of storm damage we found was in the small community of Latch. That's about eight miles west of Gilmer in Upshur County. 

Folks we spoke with say it was straight line winds that took down trees and limbs, with one tree smashing a family's car. Fortunately, no one was hurt. It was one of many reports last night of winds of 60 miles per hour and baseball size hail.
