Niki Jackson and Joe Miller shared this photo of storm damage in La Vernia, after what may have been a tornado tore through the Wood Creek and Country Gardens subdivisions May 25 in the early morning hours with storms that brought torrential rain and high winds to much of South Central Texas.

LA VERNIA -- Residents here are breathing collective sighs of relief after a rainy, windy day May 25. While residents to the south and west of the La Vernia area were dealing with a swollen San Antonio River, some city residents reported that a possible tornado touched down in the area of the Wood Creek and Country Gardens subdivisions.

Chief Bruce Ritchey of the La Vernia Police Department said some trees were blown over and a few back yard trampolines were thrown into the street. He also said a tree was uprooted in the La Vernia City Park, where a fence also was damaged.

Aaron Treadway of the Austin-San Antonio National Weather Service Forecast Office in New Braunfels said May 28 that the office had not received any reports from the La Vernia area. Anyone who witnessed such activity is urged to call the National Weather Service at 830-629-0130.

According to the CoCoRaHS (Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network) website, a station located 4 miles south-southeast of La Vernia reported a total of 2.19 inches of rainfall May 25-26. A station located 4.6 miles west-southwest of China Grove, reported a total of 4.25 inches of rainfall for the same period, while one located 4.9 miles south of St. Hedwig reported 1.58 inches.
