June 16, 2023- Last night June 15th several buildings were damaged and some destroyed completely, one being one building of Hopkins County Precinct 2 Barn. The other buildings did not suffer such severe damage.

With the shear destruction, it is suspected a tornado touched down and completely flattened the barn. Several limbs, light poles, and other debris such as sheet metal have been scattered around the surrounding area, however all limbs and other debris has been removed from the roads leading through Como. County crews all over Hopkins County are working tirelessly to clear county roads.

During this unfortunate natural disaster homes have also been destroyed. Roofs removed, trees uprooted and belongings scattered to the winds. Several casualties has been reported, but no reports thus far of severe injuries.

Power will be disabled in select areas of the county as several powerlines and poles have been knocked down due to the storm. Oncor and Farmer’s Electric crews continue to work to restore power to county residents.
