BLANKET (May 20, 2013)—A strong storm produced what authorities think was a tornado Monday evening that smashed into the public school complex in Blanket, a small town in the rolling hills southwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reported a tornado at around 6 p.m. Monday in Blanket, a town of about 400 residents about 100 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
Brown County sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Chandler said the storm caused "massive damage" to the town's public school complex and toppled many utility poles, but did only minor damage to the surrounding homes and businesses.
Chandler says school was out and no injuries were reported.
