Severe weather in East Texas leaves at least two injured

An afternoon of savage thunderstorms and possible tornadoes caused scattered damage but injured at least two residents of a badly damaged home.
   Chief Deputy Chris Mars of the Franklin County Sheriff's Department said the shattered house where the two were injured north of Winnsboro, about 95 miles northeast of Dallas. There was no immediate word on their condition.
   About 40 miles to the south, in Lindale, a storm that eyewitnesses reported looked like at least one tornado damaged about 50 homes. Deputy Smith County Fire Marshal Eric Lowry said six had major damage, but no injuries were reported.
   The areas were under tornado warnings at the time of the damage.
