Early Tuesday morning a series of severe storms spawned at least 6 tornadoes in southeastern Texas near the Houston Metro. One city majorly affected by these tornadoes was Van Vleck, Texas. The Associated Press reported at least 7 people being transported to the hospital for injuries sustained as a result of the tornadoes. One injury came to a mother who shielded her child from the tornado as it flipped their mobile home. The mother is still in the hospital with a possible spine injury. The structural damage the city sustained from the tornadoes was approximately a mile long. Recreational vehicles were flipped, tops of trees were twisted off, and homes were completely uprooted among other incidents.
