HOUSTON -

Strong storms moved through southeast Texas Wednesday, and some people spotted funnel clouds.

Law enforcement agencies reported funnel cloud sightings were reported in the area of Highway 35 and state Highway 6 in  Alvin and at the Brazoria Wildlife Refuge in Angleton. They did not touch down.

The storms moved to the northeast throughout the morning and into the afternoon.

Heavy downpours and lightning strikes were frequent during the storms.

A tree was knocked down along Braeswood in southwest Houston, which blocked at least one lane of traffic.

Some power lines were also down, which caused some homes and businesses, including Westbury Community Hospital, to lose power. The hospital operated on backup generators until power was restored.

The storms were flared up throughout the afternoon, and more storms are possible on Thursday.

Thursday's high temperature is 87 degrees and there is a 40 percent chance of rain.
