The aftermath of storms in Tolar is marked by devastation and no electricity
The city of Tolar in Hood County, Texas, took a serious beating from storms Wednesday night.
The scene video shows multiple huge trees and electricity cables down.
Sheriff Roger Deeds of Hood County, who has been investigating, stated that some complaints have also included broken windows.
According to Deeds, the storm hit at roughly 6 o’clock, and since then, deputies and fire workers have responded to a large number of damage calls.
Us Highway 377 was closed for quite some time, and it was only one of several instances where huge tree limbs had to be removed from streets and roadways.
Due to the weather forecast for tomorrow, August 18, the Tolar Independent School District has decided to postpone the start of the school year.
Travis Stilwell, the superintendent, has surveyed the district’s facilities and reports no severe structural damage, but the entire town is without electricity.
At 10, Mr. Stilwell announced, classes will begin. That will provide us some time to examine the situation and guarantee that we have power.
Stilwell also announced a two-hour delay for bus service.
Since the pumps are not working, the city is urging households to save water in case the power outage lasts longer than expected. The city has claimed it is unsure of when power would be restored.
