No injuries were reported as a result of the severe weather.

In other areas, one could see trees smashed into homes.

In Kingwood, an EF1 tornado caused a tree to fall into a family home. The tree barely missed their daughters’ bedrooms.

“Everything was just starting to shake,” Avery Terry said. “We were lying in bed, and it was vibrating our bed (and) the windows. It just hit so fast and so fast, and then it was gone. It was very, very loud and pretty crazy.”

In Montgomery, the roof was blown by Yo Mama’s Pit BBQ.
