Storms rolling through the Brazos Valley caused damage in Brenham about noon Friday. A Dispatcher from the Brenham Police Department says the roof of the Hartz Chicken restaurant was damaged. Employees there say they spotted a twister just before the damage.

Residents tell News 3 trees are uprooted and branches are scattered across the area. Power lines are reported to be down and power is out to some parts of town.

News 3's Rodney Harris and Blake Mathews say Doppler Radar shows what could have been a tornado about the same time of the damage. The National Weather Service reports windows being blown out of homes. They are sending a crew there to investigate.

News 3's Ashlea Sigman is in Brenham and says she does see damage but it appers to be scattered. We will update this story as we get more information.
