Severe weather left damage in southern Texas Monday evening, as a reported tornado touched down approximately 25 miles southeast of San Antonio.

As many as 50 homes in Medina County, Texas could have sustained storm damage, according to a preliminary report from the Medina County Sheriff's Office. According to a representative from the office, "pretty much all" of the homes damaged were completely destroyed.

Police said the communities of Devine and Natalia appeared to be the hardest hit. The San Antonio Express reported that several homes suffered damage, and some people were trapped in mobile homes for a period of time.

There are no reports of deaths or injuries.

The severe weather is part of a very slow-moving system that'll bring storms and heavy rain to parts of the Southern Plains through mid-week. Severe Weather Expert Dr. Greg Forbes says the area remains under a tornado threat. Get full details on the TOR:CON at
