It was the second storm of Sunday’s foul weather that destroyed Esmeralda Solis’ home just after midnight.
A witness was not exactly sure what ripped the mobile home apart and left it on County Road 697. Conditions made it nearly impossible to see the cause.
“I did not see a funnel cloud,” said Gladys Vasquez. “It could have been straight-line winds.”
The Vasquez family live just south and east of the road from the Solis home. Their home suffered damage to its roof.
Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 1200 block of CR 697 at 1:02 a.m. on a natural disaster call.
The Farmersville Fire Department was dispatched four minutes later.
According to reports, when public safety vehicles arrived on the scene the Solis’ mobile home was lying on its side in the roadway.
Two other residences were damaged as well.
Farmersville Firefighter Kevin Linsman agreed with the cause being high winds.
