LONGVIEW, Texas (KETK) – A local church steeple was toppled in a Wednesday storm.

The steeple of Oakland Heights Baptist Church on Judson Road at Eden Drive collapsed.

Wednesday night, Longview police were warning on Facebook that “lots of trees” and power lines are down in the city and are warning residents to stay inside and off the roads if at all possible.

The City of Longview asked residents to avoid the following areas:

  • Fourth Street between LeDuke Boulevard and Eden Drive
  • Judson Road
  • McCann Road from Fairmont Street to Montclair Street
  • H.G. Mosley Parkway at Marshall Avenue
