The same line of storms that did that damage began in Palacios where a funnel cloud was spotted. It passed through the city of Brazoria where people insist a tornado ripped up a roof twisting debris around a tree. Later, in Pearland, a police officer saw a funnel cloud and then as the storm headed into Baytown, nervous residents of an apartment complex ducked for cover as winds removed parts of several roofs. On the enhanced fujita scale, this is rated as a very small EF0 with winds on the high end of the range from 65-85 mph. Here's a map showing reported damage, the tornado symbol indicates where a funnel was spotted and the tree symbols indicate where storm winds either knocked something down or tore something off.
Wow - did you get caught in this morning's rough weather? I was coming out of the gym around 10 and I received a WeatherCall warning that a severe thunderstorm was moving into Brazoria county. On the short drive home, I could no doubt see the dark clouds to my south and heard the rumbles of thunder. By the time I got home, I heard the rushing wind and saw trees leaning outside my window. It rained hard for a while but that quickly turned to sprinkles.
Speaking of the rain - the storms moved through rather quickly, so the totals aren't impressive, but this is the second day in a row we've seen rain spread around and we're in for another round tomorrow. Check out how much fell, because many got wet, if only briefly.
While it will be difficult to pin-point where tomorrow's storms will set-up, it is a good bet that some of the storms could be briefly severe as today's were. Now is a good time to consider subscribing to WeatherCall: www.khou.com/weather/weather-call/Sign-up-for-11-News-Weather-Call-69192152.html. You'll get a phone call from me alerting you when a storm is heading for your specific address. Even I use it and it was pretty surreal getting a phone call from myself coming out of the gym!
