SAN ANTONIO — A day after destructive storms ripped through houses and businesses in communities west of San Antonio, the National Weather Service confirmed a tornado touched down and contributed to the damage. 

It remains to be seen, however, exactly how strong the twister was. A damage rating is expected Friday.
