FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A storm system that moved through North Texas brought a tornado that tore the decorative roof from a Fort Worth bank building.

National Weather Service meteorologist Lamont Bain says the tornado that hit on Thursday afternoon was an EF0, meaning it had winds up to 85 miles per hour.

Juan Ortiz, the Fort Worth emergency management coordinator, tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (https://bit.ly/1kyMGAS ) that a decorative roof that covered air-conditioning units was peeled off of the bank building. He says the actual roof wasn’t damaged.

National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Harris said the storm system also brought large hail to Wise County.
