Elsewhere, OSR between Interstate 45 and FM 39 had to be closed due to fallen power lines. Power was also out in North Zulch for much of the afternoon and evening.

Authorities estimate as many as five tornadoes may have touched down in Madison County. Numerous trees and small buildings were destroyed. Damage to larger structures was also a familiar sight.
