Structural damage from a tornado in Pasadena, about 15 miles southeast of Houston, is ‘catastrophic,’ according to the local police chief.
‘In my 25 years here, this is probably the worst damage I’ve seen,’ Chief Josh Bruegger told reporters outside a damaged animal shelter in the city, where two dogs were injured.
Only one person had been reported injured so far in the city, Mayor Jeff Wagner said, but ‘we’ve seen plenty of damage. We’ve seen buildings that have collapsed.’
As the storm moved east, Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana posted on Facebook that officers are ‘responding to tornado damage’ in the south of the parish.
