    Severe weather has spawned a Central Texas tornado that damaged several homes and floodwaters that washed away a car and left its driver missing.

     

    The National Weather Service says a tornado packing winds of up to 125 mph tracked across rural Burnet County on Thursday night. The twister touched down near Briggs and traveled southwest toward Bertram.

    Officials say a roof was torn off one house and another home was lifted off its foundation and tossed 150 yards away. Minor injuries were reported.

    Waco authorities say flash flooding washed away a car late Thursday, and the 18-year-old driver's body was found nearby late Friday.

    Abilene fire officials say large hail caused minor head injuries to three people at a children's parade and broke vehicle windows nearby Thursday night.
