Four people had to be rescued from a damaged home but were not seriously hurt.
The Jacksboro fire chief estimated Monday night that at least 60 to 80 homes were damaged in the storm.
The tornado hit Jacksboro ISD's elementary school just as students were to be dismissed, which meant the staff kept hundreds of students safe inside of the building in two interior hallways, while also helping rush arriving parents to safety inside of the building.
"It's just a miracle," said Scott Haynes, chief of the Jacksboro Police Department. "This campus did a great job, the faculty, staff - parents were lined up to pick up. They got everyone to get out and get in the hallways."
