Storm damages tiny East Texas town

EDOM (AP) — A suspected tornado slammed through a rural East Texas area, causing what one emergency management official called “major destruction.”

Van Zandt County emergency management spokesman Chuck Allen estimated that “easily 100-plus” homes were destroyed or damaged north of the tiny East Texas town of Edom (EE’-duhm). He said one injury was reported.

Allen described a damage track one mile wide and eight miles long extending from Edom to the north.

The storm passed through the area about 75 miles east of Dallas about 6 p.m. Tuesday. Edom Fire Chief Eddie Wood says the injured woman suffered fractures when her mobile home was destroyed in Edom, a town of about 300 residents
