The National Weather Service confirmed a tornado hit the Quarry/Linda Drive area around Highway 281 overnight. No category for the tornado was provided, but we expect that information soon.
At the height of the outages, CPS Energy reported nearly 40,000 customers without power due to the storms.
Only five San Antonio residents had minor injuries in the storms.
On the Northeast side, at least 30 homes were damaged, some destroyed, in the Glen and Camelot subdivisions

Tornado, storms damage 150 homes in San Antonio
Tornado touches down on North Side; thousands without power across S.A.

Wondering what the clean-up effort will look like in the Glen and Camelot with it being unincorporated and all the trouble its been through before.

I am thinking it will be a bit less efficient that at Alamo Heights

Rock Hill starting at Vandiver, the tornado proceeded westbound taking off roofs, burgersFi in Oak Park has its roof damaged. I understand that the HEB in Lincoln Heights is closed. Much tree damage. My flagpole is bent at a 45* angle, but no tree damage.

Part of the roof of a hamburger place in the H.E.B. parking lot on North New Braunfels collapsed.
Traffic lights were out at the intersection of N.New Braunfels and Nacogdoches.
Street was closed down to remove the debris.

Northridge St. on N.E. side by Alamo Heights school has the most damages as far as trees,
uprooted stop signs and fences torn down.

The power outage keeps going on and off as I write this.

Most folks consider themselves lucky..."it could've been worse" is the feeling.

The smell of smoke and sound of power saws throughout the area is great.

The tree service folks are making a killing!
