TORNADO DAMAGES FRANKLIN TEXAS

Late Saturday morning radar indicated a lot of circulation in the storm around Hearn, Texas off Highway 6. As it was watched it moved very quickly across toward Calvert and the Franklin. The residents had virtually no warning as it built and moved so quickly. Over the Franklin area, you were able to see debris in the radar images a, a good indication of a touchdown.  As I drove up I-45 the radar showed it moving toward the  Madisonville and Centerville area. Just as I approached I-45 and
OSR the leading edge of what hit Franklin was moving through, torrential rain, intense wind, and large hail.  Behind it, virtually nothing almost clearing skies. Franklin has extensive damage. Homes destroyed, a new church which held its first service last week destroyed. There were 12 minor injuries and no fatalities. I will be uploading additional video and photos shortly.
