Severe Weather Strikes East Texas

Storms started pounding East Texas around 2:00 p.m.  A tornado went through Titus County, but no injuries or damage was reported.

The wind and rain whipping across I-20 slowed traffic from Tyler to Canton. Thunder could be heard every few seconds and lightning lit up shopping centers all over Tyler. Large pockets of water filled the streets.  At least 13 accidents were reported in Smith County.
