AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - Storms that swept through rural parts of West Texas and the Panhandle brought heavy rain, hail and tornadoes. There were no immediate reports of widespread damage.

National Weather Service crews were set to go out Monday to inspect damage from Sunday night’s storms as more severe weather was forecast later Monday.

Meteorologist Andrew Arnold of the weather service’s Odessa office tells The Associated Press that several tornadoes cycled out of a supercell storm near Big Spring.

The roof was ripped off of Blake Thomas’ home about 10 miles outside of Big Spring. He tells Abilene television station KTXS (https://bit.ly/1WN1r4w ) he “felt walls collapsing all around” him.

Meteorologist Heather Lorenzen of the weather service’s Amarillo office says crews would investigate preliminary reports of up to seven tornadoes in the Panhandle.
