A large tornado ripped through the Pasadena area Tuesday afternoon during severe thunderstorms, according to the National Weather Service. As a result, schools in both the Deer Park and Pasadena ISD's are closed today.
Incredibly, we have only heard about one injury up to this point.
The NWS also confirmed the tornado moved across southern Harris County, near I-45 and Beltway 8 South. The tornado continued east and northeast through Pasadena, Deer Park and the Houston Ship Channel.
The NWS will be on the ground to try and confirm how strong the twister was.
