    The National Weather Service confirmed an EF-0 tornado touched down in Keller just before 3:30 Tuesday morning.

    The tornado was about a fourth of a miles long, with wind speeds reaching between 70 and 80 mph.

    In an area near Chase Oaks, trees were knocked down and some homes sustained roof damage.

    Dusty Cook stayed home Tuesday to work with crews cleaning up around his home.

    “Part of my roof is non-existent now. Part of the shingles are gone. We had water damage inside,” Cook said.


    In nearby Idlewood Estate at Hidden Lakes, winds damaged numerous roofs and knocked down several  trees.

    A trampoline from one homeowner's yard was found in a tree behind a home four houses away.

    “We didn’t know about that until our neighbor found it in their back yard,” said Billy Huber, who lives next door to where the trampoline was found. “We heard a lot of clanging and didn’t know what was going on. It was too dark at that time we just went back to bed and got up this morning and this is what we found."
