Tornadoes injure at least 8, destroy 30 structures

DALLAS - The National Weather Service said three tornadoes hit the San Antonio area during Monday's storms.

Officials said the storms damaged about 30 structures and injured at least eight people. Four people were hospitalized, though none had life-threatening injuries.

The weather service Tuesday said it surveyed damage in Medina and Bexar counties. Two of the tornadoes were measured as EF2, with maximum winds of 115 miles per hour. The third was a weaker EF1 tornado that hit 110 miles per hour.

Powerful storms packed lightning and hail and flooded roadways from South Texas to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
