UVALDE, Texas -- The cleanup following a severe storm in Uvalde begins Thursday morning.

Police in Uvalde said calls in regard to the storm starting coming in around 6:15 p.m. Wednesday as golf ball-sized hail broke windows and strong winds tossed trees and power lines onto the roadways.

By the end of the night, police said they received around 50 calls total.

Yolanda Moreno owns a feed store and has a home with her parents. Her store was trashed by high winds and hail.

"It's really bad," she said. "It looks like tossed salad and everything is damaged."

Her parents were home when a large tree toppled over onto their truck and rocked the house.

"They were home and my father says it sounded like -- what did he say --  a trailer," she said.

Police said cleanup crews have moved trees off roads that were impassable after the storm.
