A line of storms advanced as predicted across Central Texas about nightfall Sunday and delivered more than was predicted, with a second line expected to come shortly before midnight.

At least two tornadoes were reported on the ground, in Clifton and at Lake Whitney.

The Bosque County sheriff’s office reported power lines down and gas lines damaged in Clifton, with some damage to structures.

Hill County Emergency Management Coordinator Tom Hemrick said many trees had been blown down and roofs had been lifted off houses at Lake Whitney.

The extent and severity of damages still were being assessed. It was not reported whether there were any injuries.
