TEXAS, USA — Tornadoes, hail and strong winds followed a front that inched its way across parts of Texas Monday.

There were multiple tornadoes spotted across North and Central Texas in areas like Jacksboro, Luling and Round Rock.

KVUE even spotted a tornado on its Kalahari Resort camera in Round Rock during a live stream of weather coverage.

South Texas

Hail came down in San Antonio. Residents in that area snapped photos of pea and golf ball-sized hail that fell Monday afternoon. 


Once the severe weather began to move through the immediate Houston area, street flooding began to pop up all over town, even catching several motorists stranded on camera.

As our crews approached Columbus, they were greeted with a spectacular lightning show.

Conditions deteriorated quickly in west Houston as hail began to fall. Matt Dougherty got this video from the I-10 and Voss area just after 6 a.m.

Immediately after, our cameras caught a school bus navigating high waters on the northwest side of town near 43rd Street.

Some drivers weren't as lucky with the rising waters, as vehicles were seen stalling out on Oak Forest Drive.
