Last week our area saw some horrific weather that produced a number of tornadoes. At first it was thought that there were only 14 tornadoes, but that number has risen.

The National Weather Service has now confirmed at least 17 tornadoes touched down in North Texas last week.

[photogallerylink id=79599 align=left]The most recent confirmed was an E-F0 tornado in Coppell, with winds of 65 miles per hour or more. That tornado in Coppell is in addition to a hailstorm that city faced.

City crews had to clear limbs from the street and many Coppell residents had to file insurance claims for hail damage.
