Tornado touches down in Franklin, Texas, as severe storm system threatens Southeast

Source: CNN

A tornado ripped through Franklin, Texas, on Saturday, as the National Weather Service in the state posted one tornado warning after another.

There were reports of multiple injuries, the NWS said, and CNN affiliate KWTX reported widespread damage. Trees were pulled up by the roots, roofs torn off buildings, and the cinder block foundation was all that was left of a mobile home in the town, which is southeast of Waco.

There are no deaths reported as a result of the storm activity in the area, Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak told CNN on Saturday. The entire town of Franklin and neighboring Bremond have no electricity and power is expected to be back on by 8 p.m. (9 p.m. ET).

To the north, dime-sized hail pounded the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
