SkyEye’s video showed completely ripped roofs of several buildings and heavy, twisted metal threaded through the neighborhoods.

No known injuries have been reported due to inclement weather.

In other areas, you could see trees crashing into houses.

In Kingwood, an EF1 tornado knocked down a tree in a family’s house. The tree barely missed their daughters’ bedrooms.

“Everything just started to shake,” said Avery Terry. “We were in bed and it rattled our bed (and) the windows. It just hit so fast and so fast, and then it was gone. It was very, very loud and pretty crazy.”

In Montgomery, the roof was ripped off from Yo Mama’s pit barbecue.
