5 Left Dead After Tornadoes Tear Through Texas
After a very active night of severe weather from Texas to Illinois, many are left homeless and stranded due to severe flooding and severe storms. Unfortunately, one of the severe storms produced a tornado that tore through Canton, Texas Saturday evening and left scenes of the once well-known town unrecognizable.
Van Zandt County, the county in which the main tornado tore through, is home to Canton and Canton City. At it’s strongest, the Van Zandt County tornado was a half of a mile wide and lasted for more then 40 miles!
Eustace, TX (which can be found just to the south of Canton, TX) was also ravaged by strong storms and a possible tornado. The tornado struck a car dealership leaving behind a hectic scene of twisted metal and bare trees.
