RICE, Texas — Witnesses watched in awe as a tornado ripped through Rice in Navarro County on Sunday evening.

One of those witnesses, Joey Romero, caught the twister on camera. He and his girlfriend rushed into a Sonic restaurant and got into a freezer with other customers for shelter.

They said they saw hail the size of baseballs.

Police said the tornado destroyed three homes, flipped a tractor-trailer over and knocked freight train cars off the tracks.

Officials said four people suffered minor injuries.
