Seven months after a historic, devastating tornado made landfall along the Gulf Coast of Texas, tragedy struck again. Two homes in Holiday Beach, TX were all but destroyed by an EF-0 tornado.
Both of these homes in the Holiday Beach area were being rebuilt after Harvey destroyed them 7 months ago. Last night, a tornado tossed the roof from the house in the first picture into the house in picture 2. #txwx #ccspotter pic.twitter.com/mHz2Bqgfnp

Two NWS Storm Survey Teams will be surveying damage in the blue shaded areas on the map. Some of this damage may have been the result of multiple tornadoes associated with the squall line that moved through South Texas early this morning. More details will be forthcoming today. pic.twitter.com/3d12CjICee

Local Storm Reports from NWS Corpus Christi Office
Local storm reports from Emergency Managers state that seven people needed to be rescued from a damaged home after it went through. Initial reports indicate the tornado near Holiday Beach was an EF-0.
Multiple tornado reports came in from around the area. Damage surveys completed by the National Weather Service in Corpus Christi determined that the tornado in Woodsboro was an EF-0 with peak winds around 80 mph. It was on the ground for 0.6 miles with a path width of 75 yards. The tornado too down powerlines and damaged the roofs of several homes.
