Two families seeking shelter from the storm Sunday night in Cypress were caught under a gas station awning when it collapsed.

Cy-Fair volunteer firefighters got the call just after 8pm. It happened at a Shell station on Tuckerton Road at Queenston Boulevard.

The manager says the gas station was days from opening.

Both families were in their vehicles when the awning came down. One woman was transported to an area hospital, but firefighters do not believe her injuries are life threatening. No other injuries were reported.
