Davis made his way to his parents’ house in the Winchester neighborhood.
“It looked like it zipped right down the middle of Browning Street and just ripped trees up all over,” Davis said. “Looks like the majority of houses there have damage. My parent’s home has holes in the roof where wind just ripped shingles and turbines off. I saw power lines and cables down laying across Gerard. Someone said a wall was knocked down, but I didn’t see it.
Wasn’t really looking though, I was just trying to get to my parents and kids.”
Davis described several homes on the south end of Lakeshore Drive as “hit hard, just smashed.”
Cleburne ISD canceled Thursday classes. Smith Middle School and Gerard Elementary School sustained damage.
City Manager Rick Holden said water service remains operational, although it’s on emergency power. Holden said the system is not contaminated and continues to operate at full pressure.
