Emory Texas Subdivision Major Storm Damage

Recovery efforts are underway in Emory after storms destroyed a subdivision in the city.

"We had one of our subdivisions which took a direct hit," said Deputy John Wedeking, the emergency operations manager for Rains County.

Wedeking said several homes in the subdivision were flattened but no fatalities were reported. One person was transported by EMS for an injury. The deputy said all residents and personnel have been accounted for.

Officials are asking volunteers to refrain from heading to the area to assist.

"We've been overrun with volunteers and equipment," Wedeking said.
