FORT WORTH, Texas, March 10 (UPI) -- A storm responsible for blizzard-like conditions in the Rockies spent Saturday night and early Sunday producing severe thunderstorms in Texas.

Strong winds sheared the roof off a grocery store and damaging baseball-sized hail was reported in Hamilton, Texas, 100 miles southwest of Fort Worth, meteorologists said. Hail as large as golf balls was reported in several neighboring counties, the Fort Worth (Texas) Star Telegram said Sunday.

A lightning strike make have cause a home in Fort Worth to burn, though the official cause remains under investigation, fire officials said.

Several counties in north central Texas remain under a severe thunderstorm warning until 11 p.m. Sunday, WFAA-TV, Fort Worth, Texas, said.

Accuweather.com said in Texas, Dallas, Waco, San Antonio and Austin could see some storm-related damage. The same is true in McAlester and Tulsa, Okla.
