Four people were injured as a tornado ripped across northeast Texas last night, destroying five homes with 125 mph winds. The tornado knocked an 18-wheeler onto a car, seriously damaged a school, and pummeled a freight train, pushing 11 cars off the track, CNN reports. Another northeast Texas storm destroyed a home and damaged three others. "After we came out of the restroom," where she and her brother had taken refuge, "our house was just gone," said a victim.
