BIG SPRINGS, TX (WCMH/KXAN) — “Daddy! Daddy, let’s go,” the family’s 10-year-old daughter can be heard saying in the video as the funnel cloud develops in front of them.
The video, posted on Abraham Gonzalez’s Facebook page shows his family forced to take cover under an underpass from high winds and hail.
The family was on their way home after their daughter’s softball game when the storm hit.
While passing Stanton, Texas a friend called us and advised is to be very careful because high winds and hail was horrible in Big Spring and heading our way. While trying to continue we witnessed several tractor trailers parked on the side of the road and some tipped over! We headed onto an access road and got under a bridge to avoid the storm heading our way. At this time is when we looked ahead of us and the tornado started forming.
Gonzalez said his family and other vehicles were under the bridge for at least an hour during the storm.
