HOUSTON COUNTY, Texas (KETK) - Angelina County Emergency Management posted dramatic drone video footage showing the devastating storm damage in Houston County.
The video, posted on ACEM's Facebook page, was shot by Shearer Drone Works in Crockett. It shows structures flattened or torn apart, trees and vehicles strewn about like toys, and swaths of forest leveled by the winds.
It also shows how monumental a task cleanup after the storms that ripped through East Texas Saturday will be as the drone flies over Hwy 21, now littered by fallen trees.
The footage also provides a reminder of the need for caution as cleanup begins. Power lines are down throughout the area, and debris can pose and hide countless dangers.
So, if you're cleaning up, remember - be careful out there.
