Emergency responders were still assessing damage in Kennedale Tuesday afternoon where there were reports of widespread damage.
Police officers reported that one tornado touched down about 1:30 p.m.
Several mobile homes were either destroyed or damaged on New Hope Road and several businesses were reported damaged at Tower Drive and East Kennedale Parkway, said Tommy Williams, Kennedale police chief.
Police will run additional patrols through the area as business people try to secure their locations to make sure that there is no looting, Williams said.
Residents were also reporting power outages throughout the area, Williams said.
“There was one woman who was inside her mobile home when it flipped over but she was not injured,” Williams said. “She was very fortunate.”
The entire city was fortunate, Williams said.
“It looks like the tornado hit a house here and a house there and then skipped over most of Kennedale and then hit Arlington,” Williams said. -- Mitch Mitchell
