The damage they left behind is significant. The Arlington Fire Department is aware of at least seven reported collapses from the storm, said Lt. Richard Fegan. The Emergency Operation Center has been activated to respond to all of the reports.
One of the calls came from a Burger Box restaurant, where a drive through awning fell and trapped a truck and its occupants, Fegan said.
No one inside was injured, he said.
Patrick Harris was eating at a restaurant nearby when he saw the collapse.
But the damage extended all over the city.
Three people were transported to hospitals with minor injuries, Fegan said. And 75 families from three apartment complexes have been displaced by the storm.
Utility companies Atmos and Oncor have been responding to downed power lines and gas issues, and the Red Cross has been on scene with first responders, Fegan said.
