Two Schools destroyed, hopefully the children were evacuated but by the looks of it search and rescue is out now which doesn't sound good. Hearts go out to any families effected by this tornado and the ones yesterday!
Today is a day that you want to keep a close eye on the weather! Most of Central Texas is under a Moderate Risk for severe weather today. By early this afternoon storms will start to form across Central Texas, and will likely last through the evening hours. Any storms that form could produce gusty winds, large hail, and possibly a few tornadoes!
