Possible tornadoes touch down in area cities

CENTRAL TEXAS, TX (KXXV) - Parts of Bosque and Hill Counties were under constant severe weather threats and took the brunt of Sunday's storm including a possible tornado in Clifton. Authorities are also reporting a possible tornado in Hamilton County near the community of Shive.

Those tornadoes have not been confirmed yet, but the National Weather Service will likely send people out to survey the damage to determine if it was a tornado or high winds that caused that damage.

Most damage in Clifton was at the Texas Safari ranch, where several barns were destroyed in the storm. Parts of the barns were sent scattered across the field. According to first responders, no injuries were reported.

Residents say it sounded like a tornado touched down to them.

Cities like Clifton, Whitney, and Hillsboro got as much as 5 to 7 inches rain on Sunday.

The rain caused some flooding, forcing several street closures and even prompting flash flood warnings. The storm also knocked the power out causing all the city's stop lights to go dark.

The severe weather threats have been lifted in those areas but residents may not get a break from the rain, as more rain in likely in the coming days.

Hamilton County authorities report heavy damage near Hamilton County Road 513 from a possible tornado. A family's home and barn were reportedly heavily damaged as the family was gathered for Mother's Day. There were no injuries reported, but considerable damage.
