One reported tornado in Grayson County on Friday

At least one tornado apparently touched down in North Texas on Friday afternoon as residents faced another spring day with the potential for severe weather.

A photo taken in Grayson County near the town of Dorchester on Friday afternoon showed what looked a like a tornado moving through a less-populated part of the area.

City officials in Celina, just north of Frisco,  report an undetected tornado briefly touched down in the area of County Road 134 damaging a wedding venue. Several other homes in the area also received some damage.

A large percentage of North Texas faced a moderate risk for severe weather, according to the National Weather Service. Multiple tornado warnings were issued for counties north and south of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but none were issued for Dallas or Tarrant County.

Mayfest officials in Fort Worth was canceled for Friday night after some severe storms moved through Tarrant County.

There were no immediate reports of injuries from the storms.

There were several reports of damage in the East Texas area from suspected tornadoes. A Hibbett Sports store in Lindale, just northwest of Tyler,  was demolished after a reported tornado hit the area. The area also experienced some flooding.

Lindale officials report there were minor injuries but no one was transported to the hospital.
