Whilst most of us have been longing for sunny weather and cursing wind and rain, others have it even worse than we do. Two children died and dozens of people were injured on Saturday during severe storms in eastern Texas, according to local media, citing authorities.
The children, aged three and eight, were killed when a tree fell on the car in which they were travelling with their parents, near Pollok, about 260 kilometers south-east of Dallas, said the office of the sheriff of the Angelina county to the television station Kltv.
Five helicopters were used to carry 25 people still injured due to bad weather in Alto, about 30 kilometers north of Pollok. The National Meteorological Service had previously issued a tornado warning for both locations.
