Parts of Hopkins County saw some small storm activity earlier today, with penny-sized hail and 40mph winds.

Power had been returned to nearly all but about a dozen Northeast Texas homes as of Wednesday afternoon, hours after overnight storms left more than hundreds of homes in the dark.

While the storms moving through North Texas have not affected KETR's listening area in a severe way, we'll keep up with the latest here. Of course, we'll be on the air as soon as a severe weather situation presents itself, as always.
