Severe storms pummeled parts of eastern Texas Sunday into early Monday morning with softball-sized hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.

A tornado struck Rio Vista, Texas, about 40 miles south of Fort Worth, late Sunday night. Local emergency management reported of overturned trucks and various building damage, including to the local high school.

Earlier Sunday night, additional tornadoes touched down near Stephenville and Glen Rose, Texas.

Strong winds, some reaching near the 70-mph mark, sent trees crashing down from Fort Worth to Houston. Thousands of people were without power into Monday morning as electric crews rushed to repair downed power lines.

Early Monday morning, Navasota, Texas, was struck by a tornado and two residences were reportedly hit.

Flash flooding also sparked travel delays across the region with multiple water rescues conducted in Johnson County.
