COPPERAS COVE — A tornado touched down in Copperas Cove on Sunday afternoon, damaging dozens of houses as well as countless trees but apparently causing no injuries, according to early reports from the city. The National Weather Service confirmed a tornado touched down about two miles northwest of Copperas Cove just after 5 p.m. They said they should have more information available after they send someone out to assess the aftermath today.

“I actually saw it hit,” Copperas Cove resident Cheryl Julien said. “I was cleaning the window when I saw it touch down (north of us). I yelled at my family to get into the bathroom because there was a tornado coming.”
