Spring Delivers Tornado, Flooding To Central US

Heavy rain, hail and at least one tornado struck the central U.S. overnight and the forecast on the first day of spring was for more of the same.

The National Weather Service said a tornado touched down Monday evening about 25 miles southwest of San Antonio, Texas. Most of the damage was to rural homes north of the towns of Natalia and Lytle.

“We have multiple homes damaged, several homes were taken by this tornado,” said Roy Bermudez, a deputy with the Medina County Sheriff’s Office. Several people suffered injuries.

Thousands of customers lost power in San Antonio and Dallas-Fort Worth, where strong winds and rain pelted the area, and power outages were reported in Oklahoma City and Tulsa County.

Flights were stopped temporarily Monday night at Love Field airport and some 35 flights were canceled Tuesday at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
