HOUSTON – Thousands of people were left without power as a front pushed heavy storms across the Houston area, according to CenterPoint Energy.
The storms brought lightning, thunder, high winds and even some hail as it moved through the area.
The high winds were the major issue, causing overturned trucks, tree damage and even knocking over a gas station awning.
