The town of Cisco, Texas will spend Monday cleaning up after a tornado destroyed several buildings there and left one person dead over the weekend.

An EF3 tornado struck the town in central Texas — destroying nine homes and injuring three, in addition to the one death.

Hagen Black was home with his family when he realized the tornado was coming in their direction.

It managed to travel right around their home.

“Everything’s calm and still. There was no wind or rain, and I looked to the west and I could see it circling and I could hear it. It sounded like a plane going over the house,” said Black.
