Storms across Texas cause scattered damage

DALLAS (AP) — Authorities say they have been surveying damage a day after thunderstorms spawned more than a dozen tornadoes that hit widely scattered areas of mostly rural Texas.

More storms were forecast Tuesday.

No injuries were reported in Monday's storms, which also brought hail and high winds.

Houston County Fire Marshal David Lamb said the storms damaged six homes and an unoccupied mobile home in the East Texas about 130 miles north of Houston. He says it's unknown whether tornadoes caused the damage.

Authorities say tornadoes were reported as touching down in portions of North Texas, but the twisters were relatively weak. They mostly struck open country south of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
