NWS: Not enough evidence Lakeway area damage caused by tornado

The National Weather Service is asking anyone with video from Sunday's storms near the Lakeway and Point Venture areas to contact them so they can better determine what caused the damage.

Multiple buildings and trees were damaged by the Sunday morning storms, and the NWS said based on their survey Sunday, there was not enough evidence to call the damage as being from a tornado.

“It appears that 70-80 mph winds moved across the SW portion of Lake Travis in the Lakeway and Point Venture areas,” NWS said at the time.

A video posted on YouTube on April 2 appears to show a waterspout over Lake Travis.

NWS Warning Coordination Meteorologist Paul Yura is hoping the extra video provided by the community will help in the determination.

KVUE has provided this video to the National Weather Service for review. This story will be updated.

Karen Rego’s Point Venture home was heavily damaged in the storm and Trent Chastain of Brooks Hollow said his home was blown off by the storm.
