BEAUMONT, Texas -- A tornado swept through a Beaumont shopping district without warning Tuesday, collapsing a department store roof, overturning vehicles and leaving several people in stores and parking lots with minor injuries.

The tornado hit a Kohl’s Department Store— collapsing its roof—skipped over a Wal-Mart and continued on to Parkdale Mall, leaving a trail of destruction about a half-mile long

In the parking lot, cars and trucks were tossed like toys, shopping carts were twisted into a mess and huge sections of roofing material from another store hundreds of yards away were flying around like missiles.
