SAGINAW — Near Saginaw, we observed a few fences, trees and a swing set toppled by high wind.

"There was no funnel clouds or anything, just the high winds," said Saginaw resident Lauren Rohloff.

The worst damage may be to the cars and trucks caught in the storm out on streets and highways. Some vehicles took cover under an overpass to stay out of the way of racquetball-size hail.

We observed a rotating wall cloud near Texas Motor Speedway, but it never developed into a funnel cloud.

Damage reports are still coming in, but right now it looks like hail and high wind caused most of the problems, and phones will be ringing at insurance adjusters' offices in the morning.
