At least one tree was also split up into multiple pieces in Mission.

Crews continue to assess the damage and clean up the mess. The Rio Grande Valley got an estimated 6 to 12 inches of rain.

In Cameron County, a tornado touched ground last night in Brownsville, an EF-0 was reported completely tearing off the roofs of homes and knocking over trees.
