... NWS damage survey for April 27 early morning thunderstorm winds...

The National Weather Service accompanied by the Grimes County
emergency manager conducted a storm survey this afternoon
focusing on areas of damage in Grimes County. There were several
areas of tree damage with trees uprooted or snapped. In each case
trees were pushed down to the east or northeast and generally in
the same direction as nearby damage. All observed damage was
consistent with straight line downburst winds.

A parked tractor trailer was blown over between Navasota and
Anderson along Route 90. A Hay barn was destroyed near the
intersection of County Road 211 & 215... about 3 miles ESE of
Anderson... with debris blown toward the east. There were also
trees down in Roans Prairie and Richards again pointing eastward.
Some of the more significant damage occurred near the town of
Shiro where several large trees were uprooted... some which fell
onto Mobile homes. There were no reported injuries. Grimes County
emc and Red Cross continue with their damage assessment.

NWS then traveled eastward between Anderson and New
Waverly... through Sam Houston National Forest. Again there were
several areas of trees down generally facing toward the east. From
available storm reports wind damage was common from Brenham to
Livingston as Bow echo tracked across the area.

Note: the information in this statement is preliminary and
subject to change pending final review of the events and
publication in NWS storm data.
