At around 4:30am on Saturday, the San Angelo Fire Department was dispatched to a collapsed structure on the campus of the West Texas Boys Ranch – Tankersley.

A young male was trapped beneath the collapsed structure.

Firefighters were able to free the male from the debris of the collapsed structure. The male was taken to a hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.

At least forty people had to be evacuated due to concerns over downed power lines. Those people are being housed at a shelther at the First United Methodist Church of San Angelo.

A resident of San Angelo was first aware of the Tornado when she heard an emergency alert come over her phone. We’re hoping the sirens went off!

The women told KTXS 12 that she hid in the closet with her family and also said that the Tornado sounded like a train. Our question is, did the sirens go off?

A car was thrown into a house in the city, however nobody was injured as a result of the event. Thank goodness.
