Large hail, possible tornado, damage North Texas region

Posted

DALLAS (AP) — Storms carrying large hail and damaging winds, including a possible tornado, caused severe damage to parts of North Texas.

The town of Bowie, about 65 miles (105 kilometers) northwest of Fort Worth, was hit hard by a storm while under a tornado warning Friday night. City officials did not immediately respond to inquiries from The Associated Press, but Mayor Gaylynn Burris told the Bowie News that the storm damaged at least 50 businesses and at least that many homes in the town of more than 5,000 residents.

A police statement said no deaths or significant injuries were reported. The National Weather Service said a survey team was heading to the town Saturday to determine whether a tornado caused any of the damage.

Severe storms also unleashed hail as large as softballs in the Wichita Falls area, about 110 miles (175 kilometers) northwest of Fort Worth, damaging roofs and vehicles.
