HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) -

A severe storm system that blew through East Texas Tuesday morning resulted in four houses on FM 1669 in Huntington being damaged by fallen trees.

One home in particular got the worst of the damage after four trees came crashing down on to Steve Nelson's garage and two year old Camaro around 7 a.m. this morning. 

"I had several trees come down, one hit the garage the other one hit the car, I had three cars and the newest one the Camaro is the only one that got hit," said Nelson. 

Nelson expects the damage to cost in the ten's of thousands. 

"10 to 20 thousand dollars at least, I'm thinking because of the garage is probably completely destroyed," said Nelson.

Across the street from Nelson's home a large tree fell on power lines knocking the power out for several hours. 

The power has since been restored. 

His neighbor also had a tree go through her bedroom. 

In addition, Huntington High School students were out of school Tuesday because of a power outage at that campus.

The sign for the Huntington Independent School District baseball field was knocked down by the high winds.
