Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a tweet that authorities had received reports of a tornado touching down around the 100 block of Airway, near Airline and W. Gulf Bank in north Harris County. No injuries were reported.
ABC13 arrived at the scene and found a large tree that damaged a home and landed on top of a vehicle. A trampoline was also on its side.
It's unclear if a tornado touched down, but damaging wind gusts over 40 mph were expected with the storms.
The homeowner's stepdaughter, Brianna Johnson, was inside the home when a portion of the large tree fell over a vehicle, through the attic of the house and the living room.
"I just heard the loud noise," Johnson said, "but I heard wind and I just heard the boom."
Johnson said before the tree fell she was watching the news and received a tornado warning alert on her phone. Johnson said she moved from the couch to the front door when the tree limb collapsed through the roof, landing just inches where she was sitting moments before. Johnson explained how some of their damaged belongings held special sentimental value.
"Now I'm sad, you know, because, I don't know, it's like the car," Johnson said as she fought back tears and looked at the damage outside the home. "My mom passed away, so it's like so much emotion right now. I don't know what to feel."
We do have a HCSO unit on scene. There is damage to a home. Partners with Fire Department are getting the resident and her pets out of the home. EMS enroute for precautionary reasons. #HouNews https://t.co/PTLPvGLQiU— Ed Gonzalez (@SheriffEd_HCSO) October 27, 2021
Gonzalez said that emergency crews worked to get Johnson and her two pets out of the home, after she called 911 early Wednesday morning.
Johnson, along with her stepfather Charles Thompson, returned just a couple hours later and allowed ABC13 to walk through the debris as they assessed the damage.
"I'm pretty upset, but there's nothing you can do about stuff like this," Thompson said. "You know, weather happens."
Thompson said they do have insurance to cover most of the extensive damage to the home.
More damage was discovered at another home just two houses down from the scene on Airway.
A branch toppled onto vehicles and the street was without power.
"I just heard that big boom, so I don't know if it was a tornado or not, but it was real, real hard, the wind," resident Maria Serratos explained
No injuries reported. Possible tornado touchdown caused this massive tree to fall on this home and vehicle off Airway Rd. We are live now on @abc13houston https://t.co/rYnAk2JFX7 pic.twitter.com/nWmiaExmPI— Brhe Berry ABC13 (@BrheABC13) October 27, 2021
In the Westfield subdivision near Fry Road and Morton Road in the Katy area, a palm tree snapped.
While we hope to not see more damage, it's possible.
Winds are expected to peak on Thursday with northwest winds at 25-35 mph and gusts up to 50 mph behind the cold front.
