Tornadoes touch down in Dallas vicinity – CBS News

DALLAS — A severe storm system moving across northern Texas is bringing with it hail, high winds and multiple reports of tornadoes.

The Fort Worth office of the National Weather Service said Sunday night it had received reports of a tornado near Covington in Hill County and an earlier tornado near Cleburne State Park in Johnson County.

One funnel was seen touching down near Blum, reports CBS Dallas. Another was confirmed just west of Rio Vista, and another near Grandview.

Tornado warnings and watches were in effect for a time for a large swath of north-central Texas, including Dallas and Fort Worth.

Storm chasers broadcast images earlier Sunday of a tornado in the area of rural Comanche and Erath counties.

Baseball-size hail was reported near Stephenville, about 70 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

Flash flooding was possible from the torrential downpours from the severe thunderstorms.
