CLEBURNE, Texas - School is expected to resume Monday in a Forth Texas community where a tornado damaged homes and cut power.

Campuses in the Cleburne school district, about 25 miles south of Fort Worth, were closed Thursday and Friday after a tornado Wednesday night caused electrical outages and dangerous road conditions.

Dallas-based Oncor (ON'-kor) said Friday afternoon that about 600 customers in Cleburne were still without power, down from about 4,000 in the area at the height of the outage.

The National Weather Service has rated the tornado that hit Cleburne as an EF-3. Winds were estimated at 135 to 165 miles per hour. No deaths or serious injuries were reported in Cleburne.

Cleburne is 25 miles southeast of Granbury, where a tornado Wednesday night killed six people.
