The storms from this afternoon did cause some damage across the area. We had a wind report of 60 mph in Lufkin that blew down several trees. However, overall reports were limited so it could of been worse. Summer storms like these have the tendency to be pulse severe. In other words, they briefly produce severe weather then quickly weaken. There was a lot of energy in the atmosphere today so it was no surprise these storms erupted. I expect another round tomorrow afternoon, but the storms will probably be more isolated.
