The National Weather Service said a tornado damaged homes in a neighborhood on the city's Northeast Side overnight Saturday.

NWS inspectors said the tornado was an EF-1 on the enhanced Fujita Scale with wind gusts of 80 to 100 mph.

Most of the heavy damage was located along Knollcreek Drive, Jung Road, and Classen Road.

Residents said the storm shook houses, tore down fences, uprooted trees and left holes in rooftops.

"It was scary, it sounded like a freight train," resident Casey Oberholtzer said. "I usually don't freak out. My buddy was saying get the dogs. I was saying go to the bathroom."

Resident Richard Cruz said he woke up when he heard a huge tree fall on his house.

Other residents woke up to find furniture they had left outside strewn about in other neighbor's yards.

One neighbor found their couch in a pool.

"There was more damage than we realized when we got up," resident Linda Hill said. "My whole fence is gone. These three houses, all their fences are gone."

Residents said they expect to be cleaning up the damage for several days and hope that their insurance will cover the cost of repairs.

On the city's Northwest Side, heavy rains caused several vehicles to become stranded in high water.

Cars, trucks, and sport utility vehicles stalled in the high water.

Storms also knocked over power lines near Jones-Maltesberger Road just inside Loop 410.
