SkyEye shows first aerial look at damage after 6 confirmed tornadoes hit southeast Texas

HUMBLE, Texas (KTRK) -- The National Weather Service has confirmed at least six tornadoes touched down across southeast Texas late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Now, communities are working to repair damage and clean up debris.

The sixth tornado was confirmed in the Spring Branch area. Officials say it is mostly EF0, but with some EF1 damage. The estimated winds reached 90 mph.

On Sunday, the NWS confirmed five other tornadoes touched down in Humble, Kingwood, Montgomery and Dayton. Crews are continuing to survey damage Monday and possibly confirm additional tornadoes.



All of the tornadoes reported across the region were considered lower-end, EF0 or EF1 tornadoes on the Fujita scale.

The scale defines an EF0 tornado by 65 to 85 mph winds and an EF1 tornado by 86 to 110 mph winds.

SkyEye flew over Humble and Kingwood Monday morning, surveying the destruction left behind by the tornadoes that touched down in the communities.

The SkyEye video showed roofs completely ripped off several buildings and heavy, twisted metal strung across neighborhoods.

Amazingly, no known injuries had been reported as a result of the severe weather.

In other areas, trees could be seen smashed into homes.

Aerial images show a large tree that fell into the backyard of a home in a Kingwood neighborhood.



In Kingwood, an EF1 tornado caused a tree to fall into one family's home. The tree barely missed their daughters' bedrooms.

"Everything just started shaking," Avery Terry said. "We were in bed and it was vibrating our bed (and) the windows. It just hit so fast and so quick, and then it was gone. It was very, very loud and pretty crazy."

In Montgomery, the roof was blown off Yo Mama's Pit BBQ.

"Neighbors helping neighbors. Friends helping friends," owner Kelvin Arnsworth said. "I have people that don't even know me that stopped by to offer their help."
