Storm System Brings Tornadoes, Flooding to Parts of Texas



    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.

    The death toll from Typhoon Hagibis climbed to 53 on Tuesday, days after it tore through Japan and left hundreds of thousands of homes wrecked, flooded or out of power. Hagibis caused more than 200 rivers to overflow when it hit the island nation on Saturday.

    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.
