 An East Texas mayor has declared a “State of Emergency” for his city after a possible tornado touched down Sunday night.

Winnsboro Mayor Richard R. Parrish says the western part of the city has sustained major damage.

There are reports of several structures without roofs, a tree has been thrown inside a house and a car wash has a wall that has been destroyed.

Anyone who is in need of shelter or assistance is asked to go to City Hall, located at 501 South Main Street, where a command post has been set up.
