East Texas city takes heavy damage
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.
