GROESBECK -- Officials have released their report on last week's tornado in Groesbeck. They say the tornado was a fairly weak one, rated as an EF-1.

Fire Chief Charles Bratcher says winds hit over 85 miles an hour, causing roofs to fly off and destroying the downtown area.

Crews are still cleaning up Tuesday, and they estimate the damage to be about $500,000.
