GRAHAM, Texas - Authorities say two tornadoes have struck near a small community in rural North Texas, destroying a house but causing no injuries.

National Weather Service meteorologist Dennis Cavanaugh says the tornadoes struck near the small community of Eliasville in southwestern Young County on Friday evening.

Young County Sheriff Bryan Walls says the three people in the destroyed home were not hurt.

He says that trees have been uprooted and some barns destroyed in the storm.

The tornadoes Friday come after North Texas was hit with an outbreak of 16 tornados on Wednesday night, including one that struck the town of Granbury, killing six.
