More storms in Erath County, still repairing tornado damage

After another batch of severe thunderstorms moved through the area late yesterday, we’re still following the aftermath of the the recent EF1 tornado that blew through town, destroying homes and damaging property.
Erath County Facilities Manager John Wooley says the courthouse wasn’t closed a single day due to storm damage. Despite loosing a number of windows, including a 25×8 foot window that is being hand-repaired, and sustaining major roof and floor damage, county staff were at work in the building every day.
But since the courthouse is a historical landmark, repairs must be approved by the Texas Historical Commission before the Association of Counties considers reimbursement.
