The damage they left behind is significant. To the knowledge of the Arlington Fire Department, there have been at least seven reported crashes caused by the storm, Lieutenant Richard Fegan said. The Emergency Operations Center has been activated to respond to all reports.
One of the calls came from a Burger Box restaurant where a drive on the awning fell and trapped a truck and its passengers, Fegan said.
No one was injured inside, he said.
Patrick Harris ate at a nearby restaurant when he saw the crash.
But the damage spread throughout the city.
Three people were transported to hospitals with minor injuries, Fegan said. And 75 families in three apartment complexes were driven away by the storm.
Utilities Atmos and Oncor responded to questions about broken power lines and gas, and the Red Cross was present at the scene with first responders, Fegan said.
