Neighbors survey the damage after a large tree had fallen onto a Volkswagen car and Mazda car on Winton St. near Stonewall Jackson Elementary, Thursday, May 8, 2014.

Near Joshua, Texas, high winds destroyed a mobile home. Authorities say a mother and child were injured.

Winds reached up to 70 mph Thursday afternoon in parts of Dallas, toppling large trees, tearing holes in warehouse roofs and peeling away the front wall of a church. Dallas Area Rapid Transit suspended light rail service along its northern routes until the storm passed.

In South Dakota, the National Weather Service says quarter-size hail was reported. Several tornadoes were reported in Minnesota, but no major damage or injuries.
