RICE, Texas -- Four people suffered minor injuries as tornadoes spun through parts of North Texas, overturning vehicles and damaging a school complex.

A school district advisory says classes were canceled Monday in Rice, a town of about 950 located 45 miles south of Dallas.

Navarro County Chief Deputy Mike Cox says Rice Elementary School and five homes were damaged during a tornado late Sunday afternoon.

Cox says a truck traveling on Interstate 45 overturned, striking a car, leaving four people with non-life threatening injuries. Cox also says some freight train cars derailed.

Sheriff's dispatcher Alyssa Wilchar told The Associated Press early Monday that no other reports of injuries have been received.

The National Weather Service says another tornado damaged some homes in Hunt County, in the Lone Oak area.
