East Texas city takes heavy damage

Thursday, January 21, 2010 - 5:32pm

The East Texas City of Waskom is cleaning up today after what a suspected tornado ripped through the community last night.

The home of Gene Griffin sustained serious damage as the tornado cut a path of destruction across Interstate-20 several miles west of Waskom, Texas Wednesday evening.

Griffins' family was not hurt, but the strong winds toppled and smashed through his house and threw a small RV nearly 100 yards toward the interstate.

Griffins' neighbors were not so lucky as their homes and businesses were demolished by the twister.
