(RNN) – Severe weather rumbled through the Midwest, spawning tornadoes and heavy rain from Minnesota to Texas Thursday.

No major damage or injuries have been reported after three tornadoes hit Minnesota. 

In Texas, high winds and drenching rains damaged buildings in the Dallas area and overturned at least one tractor-trailer. 

A church in West Dallas sustained substantial damage after the front wall was blown down and part of the roof ripped off.

In another West Dallas neighborhood houses were rattled and several homes were damaged by a reported tornado. Debris was tangled in power lines and trees were shred by the winds. Homes were left with leaking roofs and broken windows and doors. No major injuries were reported.

Some portions of Dallas saw more than 5 inches of rain, causing flash flooding.

Golf ball-sized hail was reported in Bell County, TX.

On Wednesday, A tornado was caught on camera in northeast Colorado, just southeast of Akron, according to CNN. Another tornado was spotted southwest of Otis, CO.

Widespread wind damage was reported in Kansas, with a train toppled in Galva, and wind gusts up to 87 mph recorded in Meade, according to the NWS.

The 2014 tornado season spun to life with deadly destruction during a multistate severe weather outbreak that started April 25 and lasted several days. Tornadoes, flooding, wind and rain caused 38 deaths and wrecked homes, businesses and infrastructure less than two weeks ago.

The weather wreaked havoc from Iowa to Florida and up the East Coast.

Near Pensacola, FL, and Mobile, AL, the water washed out roads, overran riverbanks and inundated homes.

Baltimore suffered a road collapse that swallowed cars, and heavy rain triggered a mudslide in Yonkers, NY.
