SAN AUGUSTINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Surveillance cameras at the Jackson Hill Marina in San Augustine County captured dramatic footage the EF-1 tornado that hit that part of East Texas on Sunday from two different angles, according to a National Weather Service Facebook post.

According to the post on the Facebook page for the National Weather Service office in Shreveport, the tornado was a waterspout that moved ashore at the marina.

"Because this tornado is rain-wrapped (and coming off the water as a waterspout), it is very difficult to pick out a condensation funnel," the Facebook post states. However, notice the convergent movement of the debris field, which indicates that this a tornado as the camera is looking out of Sam Rayburn Reservoir."

The Facebook posts states that the tornado was rated as an EF-1. The tornado had maximum estimated wind speeds of between 100 and 110 mph that occurred behind and to the right of the camera in a nearby grove of tress that were snapped and uprooted.

"We would like to thank the Jackson Hill Marina for providing us with this video," the Facebook post states.
