Severe weather damage: Modest residents woke up to downed trees and power lines following possible tornado

HUMBLE, Texas (KTRK) – Powerful storms tore through southeastern Texas overnight, bringing flash flooding and possible tornadoes to some communities.

One of the hardest hit communities was the Humble area, where it spawned a tornado that caused widespread damage.

Some of the heaviest damage found by the ABC13 crew was in the vicinity of South F.

Video from the scene shows the entire corrugated iron roof of a business falling to the street, nearby the property lying in ruins.

The roof lowers the power lines before lying on the roadway. It landed diagonally, hitting a few houses.

The video also shows other debris throughout the vicinity, including insulation, wood, tree branches and a missing air conditioner unit.

A neighbor told ABC13 that the metal roof barely penetrated the bedroom where he was sleeping.

“It’s a big sound. They always say, ‘It’s like a freight train,’ and you’re like, ‘Yeah, sure.’ That sounded like a freight train hitting a brick wall,” recalls Robert Andrews.

ABC13 also spoke with the owner of one of the homes that had the roof blown off, who said his home suffered significant damage.

“I slept until it blew up. He just took it out. It was messy on the other side. It had a hole in the roof upstairs. And the wall, partially carved in concrete. The bedroom in the middle is in the middle. upstairs, its upper part punctured,” said host Mike Carr. “Also, great shape. No one was hurt. That’s good.”
