WAXAHACHIE, Texas (AP) — At least eight people were injured when storms that brought tornadoes to Texas flipped tractor-trailers on an interstate and damaged structures. Officials say three drivers were hospitalized, one with serious injuries, after their tractor-trailers overturned in the storms Monday night along Interstate 35 near Waxahachie, located south of Dallas. A National Weather Service spokesman said a tornado occurred in the area but they’re still trying to determine its intensity. In nearby Hill County, the National Weather Service says they’ve confirmed an EF2 tornado with estimated 130 mph winds occurred northwest of the small town of Blum.
