    Holiday Beach Tornado

    (Published Thursday, March 29, 2018)

    As many as seven people were pulled from the wreckage of a Texas Gulf Coast home after tornadoes swept through areas of the state in a storm system that also brought days of rain.

    One of the homes ripped apart in Holiday Beach was being rebuilt after being badly damaged by Hurricane Harvey last year.

    Seven people were rescued when the second floor of the home was destroyed. Construction workers say the roof blew off the home and landed across the street.

    The Aransas County sheriff's office says there were no serious injuries.

    [NATL] White Official Tells Black Woman He Belonged to Master Race

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    National Weather Service meteorologist Tawnya Evans says a survey team is working to determine if a tornado caused the damage or straight-line winds.

    She says a tornado destroyed a mobile home to the north in Seadrift while flipping several others. Tornadoes were also confirmed in Brazoria and San Jacinto counties.

    Meanwhile, flooding was occurring Thursday along the San Jacinto River north of Houston and other waterways in the region.
