As another line of severe thunderstorms swept through Montgomery County on Saturday evening, a possible tornado was reported moving through the Montgomery area, causing damage to a number of commercial and residential properties in its path.

Ransom’s Steakhouse suffered complete loss of its roof during the storm, also causing approximately 2 inches of water damage. Slap Yo Mama Barbeque also had parts of her roof removed and a broken front window.

Homes that were under construction and at the frame stage were completely razed in subdivisions such as Estates of Lake Creek and Buffalo Springs.
