A line of severe storms spawned at least six tornados, injured at least seven and caused damage in southeastern Texas Tuesday morning, including near the Houston metro area. In Van Vleck, Texas, recreational vehicles were flipped and structural damage was reported along a path approximately a mile long. The Associated Press said seven people were transported to local hospitals with minor injuries in the town of about 1,400 located some 70 miles southwest of Houston. Those injuries didn’t appear to be serious, Matagorda County emergency management coordinator Doug Matthes told the Associated Press.
