Many might not have even been aware but Saturday evening the storm clouds brewed, and an suspected isolated outburst of winds ripped the roof from a modular home in Westowne in the 800 block of County Road 2000 in Cooper as well as damaged other metal buildings, tumbled trees, and downed power lines.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. first responders were called to the scene of what was reported as “tornado destroying a residence on the west side of Westowne, and residents had been cleared from the area.”

It is all good and fun until somebody gets hurt. Yes. We have probably all heard this saying. It is true. The same rule applies to boating safety.

With the start of summer in Delta County, entertainment turns to the very inviting Cooper Lake – one of the many charms of Northeast Texas. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department reminds boaters of the importance of safety on the lake and in/around water.
