Videos and photos show damage from afternoon storms and pea-sized hail that fell at night

Strong storms moved through the Houston area during the day, followed by pea-size hail at night.

COLDSPRING, Texas — From morning storms to a tornado on the ground and wind damage throughout the afternoon, followed by an evening with pea-sized hail, Monday was an active weather day across the Houston area.

The damage left behind was caught on camera by viewers. Below are some of the images captured and sent in.

A home in Pasadena sustained significant damage. The owner and her daughters said they were grateful that no one was hurt.

“The clouds were solid black and it was like they just set down on us,” Tonya McGrew said.

McGrew said she was driving home Monday night when her aunt called and told her not to go there. She said she could hear what sounded like a freight train in the background as two of McGrew’s daughters and her aunt took cover in a closet.

Moments later, the storm had passed but it left behind a trail of damage. The family had to deal with a trampoline wedged between their house and their neighbor’s house. Their metal carport and awning from the front of their house had sliced through the branches of a tree.

Without homeowner’s insurance, McGrew said she’s not sure how she’ll pay for repairs, but she’s grateful that no one was hurt. The family set up a GoFundMe account to help with expenses.

There were other parts of the viewing area that were also hit by storms. Below are some of the ones that were sent in to KHOU 11 and others from our crews out in the field.
