Texas was assessing damage after severe storms brought 100-mph wind and baseball-size hail to the eastern part of the state late Friday and early Saturday.

At least some of the aftermath looked like tornado damage, according to eyewitnesses, although National Weather Service officials said straight-line winds were the culprit.

Preliminary assessments indicate dozens of homes sustained major or minor damage in pockets spread throughout eastern Texas. No injuries were reported.

Houston reported street flooding but no serious damage. The city of Gainesville reported residential damage and downed trees.
