Vicious High Damaging Winds Rip Through Houston

High property damaging winds from a line of storms moved across southeast Texas last week incurring extensive property damage and power outages for tens of thousands in the Houston region. Throughout that night high winds continued to whip Houston with a series of tornado warnings and rain storms that pushed from Brazoria County to areas south and east of Houston. Expect to see homeowners all over Harris County cleaning up downed limbs, trees, fences and blown away lawn furniture for the rest of the month.

The weather service’s log of damage reports includes structural damage to a Buffalo Speedway gas station and downed trees in The Woodlands. One tree there crashed into a home on Drybrook Road, prompting the Spring Fire Department to respond for a reported gas leak.
