Severe Storms, Tornadoes Hit Nacogdoches and Area Counties
Severe storms raced across a number of Deep East Texas counties Wednesday evening. Over the course of the night, severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings were issued for Cherokee, Nacogdoches, Shelby, and Panola counties.
One of the most concentrated areas of damage was near Garrison. Several structures were damaged or destroyed in an area just north of the Nacogdoches County town. The video above, taken by Rusty Nix, shows several chicken houses (or what used to be chicken houses) located a few miles northeast of Garrison.
Two damage survey teams from the National Weather Service in Shreveport will be investigating storm-related damage from yesterday's storms. They'll be focusing on reported tornadoes in Nacogdoches, Rusk, and Shelby counties as well as those further north in Upshur, Gregg, and Smith counties.
