Central Texas Town Slammed by Saturday Morning Twister
Some of you might've been up and tuned in when their radar spotted a tornado. Well, it did make a touchdown.
KWTX is reporting that damaged the town of Franklin, Texas.
KWTX Brady Taylor said there was a strong smell of natural gas in the area, and that at least two mobile homes were damaged, cars were overturned and power lines were down.
"Quite a bit of injuries, but no fatalities." was the quote from Tiffany Witherspoon with the Robertson County Sheriff's Office.
Firefighters were going door-to-door to check on people, and law enforcement was asking that looky-loos avoid the area until further notice.
People who were displaced should know that the First Baptist Church of Franklin has opened its doors as a shelter.
The Robertson County Sheriff's Office has also asked that you contact them to report down power lines.
So far the storms caused power outages across Central Texas, as of 1:30 p.m. Oncor reported there were a 1,000 customers in Leon County, 1,400 in Limestone County, 5,500 in McLennan County, 500 in Freestone County, 1,700 in Falls County, 1,800 in Bell County without power.
