Tonight Marks One Year Since San Antonio's Bad Tornado Swarm

One year ago tonight was a night to remember for people who live in northeast San Antonio, all the way northeast to beyond Austin, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

A rare swarm of nine separate tornadoes slammed into the region in the late evening of February 19 and the early morning of February 20, 2017, tearing off roofs, and damaging homes, cars, and apartments.

The worst was the Ridgeview-Alamo Heights tornado, which reached winds of 120 miles an hour, and remained on the ground for nearly four miles as it moved northeasterly from an area near San Pedro and Basse.

Many homeowners still have damage left from the tornadoes of one year ago tonight.
