This demolished structure is located just west of Van Vleck, near OH Herman Middle School, one of the first place the twister struck about 9 a.m. Tuesday. A man was in the house when the tornado struck, but suffered only minor injuries. About 15 structures were damaged or destroyed in the two-mile-long path of the tornado.
The Bay City High School basketball teams volunteered at the Matagorda Nursing & Rehabilitation Center recently. They visited and played bingo with the residents. Coach Nathan Janak (standing at right) and Coach Marlo Saunders accompanied their student-athletes, as well as Bay City ISD Athletic Department Secretary Linda Leissner. Coach Janak shared that the students practiced giving back to the community, serving others, caring for people in need, and respect for elders.
