HOUSTON (AP) - At least two tornados have touched down in Texas on Christmas Day as chunks of the eastern and southern parts of the state remain under a broad tornado watch.
National Weather Service meteorologist Greg Carbin says a tornado has been reported in Trinity County and another in Houston County. He says it appears only one building was damaged in the East Texas city of Crockett in Houston County.
Carbin says 21 counties in Texas are under a tornado watch until 4 p.m. CST. The weather service also warns severe thunderstorms can be expected.
The severe storms are resulting from a meeting between a cold front and warmer Gulf air
Parts of North Texas, including Dallas and Fort Worth, could get snow later Tuesday.
