Storm damage in the Palestine area left many without power, tore off roofs from homes a church and the Walmart Distribution Center.
Taylor said the damage was mostly in the area around Crockett Road where the Walmart Distribution Center had a large section of the roof ripped off as the storm passed through shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Taylor said the damage also included the Crockett Road Church of Christ where some of the windows were blown out by flying debris.
Taylor said in the Circle R Lake subdivision there were homes damaged by trees and winds, but at this point it looks as if the damage was caused by straight line winds and not a tornado.
“I’m not saying it wasn’t a tornado, but what everyone is saying at this time points to winds as being what caused the damage,” he said.
