Last Night's Storms Cause Damage Around East Texas

Storms last night caused some severe damage around East Texas.

Trees and power lines were knocked down throughout the town of Winnsboro. At the peak of the storm, the entire town was without power. Power is slowly being restored there this morning.

Winnsboro ISD delayed its classes by two hours this morning because of the rain and damage.

A tree also fell through a house on North Post Oak Road.

The Winnsboro Fire Department is cutting down damaged trees, cleaning up the town this morning.

In South Tyler, a huge tree crashed through a home on Clemson Drive, possibly due to ground saturation.

And, in the Nacogdoches area, there was street flooding reported on both North Street and University Drive.
