FANNIN COUNTY, TX -- Three people were reported injured when severe weather hit parts of southern Fannin County Wednesday night.

There are reports of damaged mobile homes, as well as downed trees and powerlines.

Witnesses tell KXII that three people suffered minor injuries after high winds flipped a mobile home on its side near Randolph. We're told they were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Emergency Management Coordinator Darrell Brewer told the AP the three people are in stable condition, Wednesday night.

There are also reports of baseball to softball size hail in the southern part of the county.

A semi-truck with several head of cattle reportedly rolled over on Highway 69, blocking traffic for hours.

KXII also received reports of downed powerlines, and viewers sent us photos of damage in Bonham as well.

    Im concerned that your reports regarding the damage from this storm is inaccurate and does not at all cover the extent of damage to Leonard. We personally suffered major property damage as well as our neighbors. We are still finding pieces of our barn up to a quarter of a mile away. The destroyed mobile home was about half a mile away from us. Maybe there was One in Randolph too but Leonard residents took a big hit and most of our adjusters are shocked when told we had a tornado and/or high winds. I personally was home that day and know what i heard and have seen damage enough to know it was a tornado or several of them even We are lucky our home is still standing. i am so disappointed that we have been forgotten out here and barely made last page news. I guess thats also why we has ZERO warning as to the extent of the storm approaching us. I have the pictures very similar to yours of the storm approaching and it was strange and scary looking but nowhere was anyone saying anything about the potential it had in it. I wish i got your channel but i dont on directv and im told you are the only channel that warned anyone. I may be ranting but im shocked how the news in Dallaa especially only covered the hail that hit rich areas of big D !!!! Geez
