Classes cancelled after winds knock trees down

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - The Halloween day storm that passed through the Houston area sent trees toppling down, and caused at least two districts to cancel classes Thursday.

In North Houston, a large live oak tree fell around 8 a.m. Thursday morning and covered Gale Street, blocking traffic for much of the day.

Two trees also fell on a travel trailer in Huffman, leaving it badly damaged. The man inside and his dogs weren't injured.

Even farther north in Liberty County, standing water could be seen off of Highway 105 near Cleveland. The Local 2 weather team said that area could have seen as much as six to seven inches of rain over the last two days.

The storm also led to the cancellation of school in at least two Houston area school districts.

Leggett ISD and Shepherd ISD both canceled classes.

"At first, my mom told me we were starting school later, and then one of my friends called and told me school was off so we started calling people to hang out and stuff," said Shepherd High School student Mariano Palafox.
