EUSTACE, TX (KLTV) - Two Eustace homes on the same property were destroyed Saturday night after reports of a tornado.

"It's bad, it's real bad and it's a pretty good path of destruction here," said resident Jared Smith.

Smith and his family searched the property on FM 2709 in Eustace. He said they watched the storm tear through the area from their car.

"We were about five miles east of here and watched it come over this area," Smith said.

When they felt safe he said they came to the destroyed homes to check on their church members.

"I was more concerned after our safety, now all my friends and this is a dear friend of ours," Smith said.

While searching the property, the family was able to get confirmation that their friends had been taken by ambulance to the hospital.
