Coming up on Good Morning East Texas : Two East Texas cities are cleaning up after severe weather damaged buildings and homes. They're surveying the damage in Lufkin this morning after a tornado touched down late Wednesday night, and work is underway to clean up damage in Longview after a tornado struck Wednesday afternoon. Fortunately, in both cases, no injuries were reported.
Sheriff's deputies in Angelina County have a suspect in custody in the death of a Huntington man. The body of 47-year-old Gary Lynn DeFratus was found outside his mother's home on Monday. Deputies have arrested 39-year-old Thomas Hugh Fielder.
And, those overnight storms caused some additional damage in Nacogdoches County. Witnesses say they sparked a blaze at a series of oil wells. Firefighters were able to quickly get the flames under control.
We will continue to see some scattered showers across East Texas today as temperatures drop. We will reach the lower 30's this evening. For Christmas morning, you can expect to see temperatures in the mid 20's with mostly sunny skies.
