The storm that moved through early Thursday morning caused some flash flooding in Texas and Oklahoma around 4:30 Thursday morning on both sides of the Red River.

Streets in Sherman near Lamberth saw some flash flooding, and in Ardmore, high winds knocked down some trees and power lines. It also flooded the Sam Noble Parkway under the railroad overpass. One car tried to make it across and got stuck. No one was hurt.

There was some storm damage in Love County as well. The winds and lightning caused power to go out for about 2,000 people.

One trailer home was a complete loss, and officials say another home near Lake Murray was heavily damaged by fire believed to have been started by lighting.

Storm damage was also reported in Johnston County overnight. In fact, the mill Creek School District had to cancel classes Thursday because they did not have electricity.

We did have reports of homes and barns damaged, and one caller said a 600-gallon diesel tank was even tossed about.
