WAXAHACHIE, Texas (AP) - At least eight people were injured when storms that brought tornadoes to Texas flipped tractor-trailers on an interstate and damaged structures.

Officials say three drivers were hospitalized, one with serious injuries, after their tractor-trailers overturned in the storms Monday night along Interstate 35 near Waxahachie, south of Dallas.

An EF-2 tornado touched down Monday night in Ellis County near Waxahachie that was on the ground for 5.2 miles.

The 659-yard-wide tornado crossed Interstate 35E south of Waxahachie.

The stormy weather also knocked out electricity to tens of thousands of people in Arkansas early Tuesday.
