SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — Forecasters say four tornadoes struck parts of West Texas in severe weather that damaged some homes and businesses.
The National Weather Service on Sunday reported two tornadoes hit parts of San Angelo a day earlier. Another twister was reported Saturday in Ballinger (BAL’-in-zher). A fourth tornado struck Abilene.
Meteorologist Terry Huber (HYOO’-ber) in San Angelo said Sunday that officials had no reports of anyone hurt in twisters from the same storm system.
Huber estimated winds topping 111 mph hit San Angelo, damaging homes and businesses and downing power lines. San Angelo police tweeted that Bradford Elementary School would be closed Monday due to no power.
Huber says a damage survey team was in Abilene on Sunday. Emergency personnel in Ballinger, 50 miles (80.46 kilometers) southwest of Abilene, worked Sunday to clear debris.
