Possible tornado damages school, mobile home park near Huntsville

LOVELADY, Texas - KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

 

Several buildings were damaged and an elderly woman suffered a cut to her leg when storms hit the small East Texas town of Lovelady, officials said.

The storm hit late Sunday afternoon.

The National Weather Service in Houston says inspectors will go to the scene Monday to determine whether it was a tornado that caused the high winds, which destroyed at least three mobile homes.

Houston County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy G. P. Shearer says eight structures were damaged, including minor damage to Lovelady High School.

Some witnesses captured the storm on camera. It showed what appeared to be a large funnel cloudy touching down.

aWe were sitting there watching CSI and the trees started shaking real bad,a said resident Billy Adams.

aThe wind started blowing, coming out of nowhere,a said Tasha Wosika. aDerekas like athis thunderstorm came out of nowhere,a and Billy goes, aI donat think this is no thunderstorm,a and all of the sudden here comes the tornado straight through the yard.a

Johnny Ramirez says his mobile home was destroyed when winds flipped it onto its roof. Thankfully, no one was home at the time.

 

Deputy Shearer said a woman received lacerations to her face and arm when a tree fell into her mobile home, but no other serious injuries were reported.

The woman was later identified as 70-year-old Tonya Cowger. She tells KHOU 11 News sheas more upset about losing her TV in the storm rather than the injury to her leg.

The storm first hit Cowgeras mobile home park and then moved on to the school about a half mile away. The school only suffered minor damage, so Monday's classes were not expected to be affected.

 

Lovelady has about 600 residents and is some 100 miles north of Houston.
