I heard that a tornado touched down in Freeport last night. Can anyone confirm? I checked some websites but none are posting. If it did touch down, does anyone know that time when?

. If it did, would probably have been before 1:00AM. TV weather guys went live and sirens went off in Walton. At that time radar tornado headed at Veron. They said it had crossed the Bay. Possibly.
