Texas Weather Gone Wild: Did You See This Storm Damage?
Central Texas saw some rain and high winds, but the weather was rougher in other parts of the state over Labor Day weekend.
The Dallas area and most of North Texas was battered by heavy rain and gusty winds Sunday, while some residents were trapped and forced to wait out the storm in their cars.
Over 100,000 people reported power outages to ONCOR, according to KXAS-TV. The majority of damage and power outages were reported in Dallas County.
While there was no injuries to staff or visitors, the Dallas Zoo had to close Monday due to power issues causing damage in and around the property. However, zoo officials said all habitats were secure and the animals were all safe, according to KDFW, FOX 4.
Central Texas Fair Shut Down Early
Sunday night, two people were injured at the Central Texas State Fair by a sign that was blown over by strong winds, according to Bell County spokesperson James Stafford. Stafford said the entrance sign was held in place by multiple 55-gallon drums filled with water, but high winds caused it to collapse on two people.
Both people were taken to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Temple. Stafford said one was in critical condition as of Monday morning. Due to the storms, the remainder of the fair was canceled. Fans who purchased tickets to see musician Charley Crockett will get a refund, and officials said they would be providing information and updates on refunds over the coming week.
