NWS: At least 8 tornadoes touched down in Texas Sunday

DALLAS (AP) — A band of tornadoes that swept across parts of rural Texas over the weekend flattened buildings, tore the roofs off other structures and forced people to rush for shelter.

National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Bishop confirmed Monday that at least eight tornadoes touched down in an area southwest of Fort Worth late Sunday.

No injuries have been reported.

The storm system also brought large hail and several inches of rain that caused flash flooding and inundated roadways.

Part of the Waxahachie police headquarters south of Dallas flooded as water several inches deep rushed into the building.

Other parts of Texas were lashed by heavy rains, including the Houston area.
