Texas - Railroad crews will continue working throughout the evening to cleanup a train derailment near Hereford.

High winds from Sunday night's storm are to blame for blowing over the 71 rail cars that were double stacked with shipping containers.

There was some damage to farm equipment parked near the tracks but no physical injuries were reported.

The track is expected to be cleaned and re-opened sometime after midnight.
