TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – Powerful storms barreled through Azle over the weekend, forcing dozens of people from their homes and canceling in-person classes for students at one school on Monday.
Winds reached up to 70 miles an hour, caused major power outages and damage to several homes and businesses.
No one was seriously hurt, but damage in the area meant some students would have the day off from school.
There will be no in-person classes at Liberty Elementary today (Monday, August 31) due to the campus being without power.
