Thousands across Galveston County were left without power Tuesday evening when a heavy storm rolled through, downing trees and flooding some areas.

More than 1,100 CenterPoint Energy Customers and more than 900 Texas-New Mexico Power Co. customers lost electricity service during the worst part of the storm Tuesday afternoon.

I had a tornado or something hit my barn in Santa Fe around 3:45 pm Tuesday. The strong winds came around 11:30 am in several bursts, the norther was fast and started around 3:00pm. I was watching the stormcell on radar, was almost out of the orange/yellow when it hit. 2 minutes later the storm was over and it started getting cooler. My barn is a decent size, built in 2009, it wrapped my roof up and tossed it on my pasture gate and in the pasture east of the barn. My luck hasn't been so great lately. rs
