BLANKET, Texas (AP) - A strong storm winds authorities suspect was a tornado smashed the public school complex in a small town in the rolling hills southwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reported a tornado about 6 p.m. Monday in Blanket, a town of about 400 residents about 100 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
Brown County sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Chandler says the storm caused "massive damage" to the town's public school complex and toppled many utility poles but only minor damage to the surrounding homes and businesses.
Chandler says school was out and no injuries were reported.
