Emergency services in the Houston area are responding to reports of damage and stranded drivers after a possible tornado tore through the area.

The Harris County Sheriff's Department "responds to a large number of stranded motorists," Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted.

The agency had prepared its high water rescue vehicles in advance of the storm, he said.

The Pasadena Police Department, about 15 miles southeast of downtown Houston, said it was "aware that a tornado has hit the southeast side of our city."

  • Authorities are finding "more bodies," a day after 35 tornadoes killed at least nine people in the south of the country.

“Several overturned commercial trucks” are also reported near Beltway 8, the beltway around the city of Houston, the department said.

He also reported that some power lines were down.

"Our officers and the Fire Department are working to help those immediately affected," authorities tweeted.

Other locations in the path of this tornado included Deer Park, Baytown, Highlands and Channelview, according to the weather service.

Brandon Miller and Theresa Waldrop, both at CNN, contributed to this report.
