WEST TEXAS (CNN) -- Violent weather roared through parts of
West Texas on Sunday. There were no injuries reported as
twisters touched down around the state, but the high winds
destroyed some homes and other buildings.
In Amarillo, winds gusting as high as 90 mph damaged at least
40 vehicles at a car dealership. A metal building was thrown
atop another structure.
The weather service said there were also wind gusts over 60
mph and hail almost three inches in diameter in some places.
Residents say they would begin cleaning up the damage Monday
