A city official says he wouldn't be surprised if a tornado caused the damage, which included toppled trees and at least one damaged roof (iWitness)

A Tomball official says a violent storm that blew into town Monday evening caused some damage around the city.

The city's fire chief says the storm came around 7:30 and knocked down several trees and limbs all over town.

The storm is also being blamed for tearing off the roof of an open storage shed at a lumber business in the 1000 block of Main Street and tossing it near a hospital and medical building. Chris Muller, the director of marketing at Tomball Regional Hospital, says there was no structural damage to the building.

An Eyewintess News viewer even sent in a photo showing a stroller that had been lifted by strong winds and landed on top of a street sign.

No injuries were reported.

Tomball's fire chief says there's no proof a tornado hit, but he wouldn't be surprised if that was case.
