East Texans Clean-up After Severe Storms

A severe thunderstorm rolls through East Texas Sunday packing strong straight line winds and leaving damage in its wake.

The gusty winds took out many a power line across East Texas from Kaufman County all the way to Cass County knocking out the lights for many East Texans.

One mobile home even lost it's roof during the storm according to Henderson County authorities.

The winds topping out at an estimated 70 miles per hour in some places took out a big tree on Highway 69 in the Swan area.

Billboards were another casualty of the severe thunderstorm in Smith County.

So far, though there have been no reports of injuries from the East Texas storms. But, Smith County residents say the storm brought with it a few tense moments.
