According to emergency crews, up to 50 structures were damaged in the storm.

“A tornado came and took our house apart, or my parents’ house, but they’re safe now,” resident Monica Flores said. “They did go to the hospital. My mom got checked out, and [had] a little bit of injuries, knee, ankle and that stuff, but they’re safe. We have a mighty God because I don’t know how they survived that.”
