Rio Grande Wind

Storms battered parts of Texas with wind up to 100 mph and hail the size of baseballs, damaging buildings and slamming parked airplanes into one another at an airport.

No serious injuries were reported Saturday, but two horses were killed when what appeared to be a tornado swept through a Waco ranch and flattened some barns and a two-story home. At least six other horses — all belonging to Baylor University's equestrian program — were injured, the school said.

"When you have winds from 80 to 100 mph it can do damage similar to that of a tornado," said Jesse Moore, a meteorologist with the

National Weather Service. "That can do some very, very big damage."
