BRYAN, Texas (AP) Officials in Bryan say the tornado that struck their Central Texas city damaged 138 homes, including four that were destroyed and 44 that sustained major damage.

The National Weather Service said Friday that an EF-1 tornado struck Bryan, located about 100 miles northwest of Houston, a day earlier.
