A Fort Bend resident explains how her and her children felt experiencing the severe weather overnight.



"It was horrific. I looked outside in my backyard and my gazebo was spinning around and I just immediately started screaming for everybody in the house to get down, get under the bed," one resident said. "I didn't have time to tell them to get in the bathtub. I have a disabled aunt, so I just went and laid on top of her because we didn't know what was going on."

Thousands were also left in the dark thanks to power outages in the region.
