Storms last weekend in Texas cause estimated $65M damage

Local News

An insurance group says last weekend’s storms across north and central parts of Texas have caused at least $65 million in damage to vehicles.

The Insurance Council of Texas reported Thursday that damage estimates for homes and businesses are still being compiled.

A statement from the Austin-based industry group says four Texas storms in the past two weeks are blamed for about 60,000 auto insurance claims.

The National Weather Service says at least eight tornadoes touched down southwest of Fort Worth late Sunday. Nobody was hurt.

Those storms included hail, heavy rain and flash flooding that swamped some roads and prompted several high-water rescues.

Other storms happened west of Austin and north of Houston on April 18, near Amarillo on April 22 and west of San Antonio last Saturday.
