Hail and high winds mark storm system in Texas and South

DALLAS (AP) — A weak tornado damaged recreational vehicles and mobile homes in south Texas Sunday, but no injuries were reported, as storms raked Texas and the South for a second day.

National Weather Service senior forecaster Waylon Collins says a preliminary report shows a tornado with winds from 65 mph to 85 mph. The storm destroyed about a dozen recreational vehicles and damaged about 50 more. Collins says several mobile homes were blown over. He says there are no reports of injuries so far.

Almost 180,000 customers in Texas were without electricity at one point Sunday, mostly around Houston.

The National Weather Service reports golf ball-sized hail in Lexington, Mississippi, damaging vehicles at the city’s police station.

High winds were reported in south Texas and Mississippi’s Delta region.
