60 mile per hour winds knocked trees down and damaged businesses and homes.
In one neighborhood off Elmo Weeden Road, in College Station, almost every house has suffered some kind of damage.

The rain fell and flooded yards...but it was the wind that left its mark on people's property, like Louie Migliaccio's.

"We did lose a rose bush trellis thing that fell down...Things are twisted around and stuff like that...There's been a few fences that have been knocked down, a few limbs," said Migliaccio.

Patio furniture has been turned upside down, landing in bushes.
Basketball hoops are no longer standing.
The winds twisted up this hammock and ripped the material from the patio cover clean off the frame.

Migliaccio said, "We looked outside and saw the trampoline, obviously it started over here...This was actually a sideways wind and it was just kind of slowly pushing the trampoline over and ripping the net as it kind of kept going."

That trampoline is now laying in pieces in his next door neighbor's front yard.
Others living in the Hunters Creek subdivision had shingles ripped off their roofs and trees bent over, some split in two.
In the ten years Louie and his family have lived in their house, this is the first time a storm has actually scared them.

"It was a little eerie, so, we of course went through some tornado drills and said, ok, kids if it gets worse, you guys are hitting the bathroom," said Migliaccio. "It just seemed kind of odd because it came out of nowhere."
