JOSHUA, TX (CBSDFW.COM) – Johnson County residents began to clean up Saturday morning after Friday night’s big storm.
In Joshua the high winds damaged many trees and frightened many residents.
Russell and Heather Green put plastic tarps on their roof after damaged done to their home.
Several residents say they ran for cover once the rain started.
Officials with The National Weather Service said Saturday, that straight-line winds of up to 90 miles an hour caused the damage. They also said there’s not enough evidence to point to anything greater than an EF-zero tornado.
“It was pretty amazing. Especially, it’s got to be hard to pick up a semi trailer and toss it on two vehicles, so yeah it was real bad. I just thank God that nobody was hurt,” says Homeowner Giles Cooper. The Cooper’s house used to sit a few feet higher, but the wind was so strong it knocked the floor of their home off its cinderblocks.
