LOVELADY, TX (NBC) - A possible tornado hit the town of Lovelady, Texas in Houston County Sunday evening, damaging several structures.

At least one person was injured when trees fell on a mobile home.

Video from Lovelady resident Greg Wilson shows what appears to be the tornado, the ominous site in the distance.

It happened around 5:00 Sunday afternoon, and now the National Weather Service will be surveying the damage left behind to confirm if a tornado actually touched down.

Several structures in Lovelady were damaged and one woman was injured when three large trees fell onto her mobile home.

She suffered cuts to her arms and legs.

The powerful winds also blew over the home next to it. It is now upside down, and its contents exposed.

The high school was also damaged. The damage to its roof is minor compared to what else happened just a short distance away.
