Storms Down Power Lines and Destroy Crops in Garza County

Storms pounded Garza County Saturday night leaving hundreds of downed power lines. Crews were busy all day repairing lines.

Meanwhile, the storm damaged 50% of cotton crops in the area. "It's going to hurt. We had a big year last year and with a big year comes income tax and coming up with he loss this time, it's going to be hard to cover some of those bills," says farmer Ray Mason.

Mason also lost power at his farm and supply store.
