Nacogdoches also experienced damage. A car parked at the SFA cinematography building  was the victim of a fallen tree.

"Cha! I was putting up pictures and yea that's pretty much it," Korey Wynn said.

Wynn and Shylah Sollis were visiting from Houston and were about to leave to go back.

"I heard it where it was I was like, 'yea that's probably my car and I am going to be chill', and sure enough everyone came running in saying that's my car," Sollis said.
