Major damage is being reported in New Orleans after a tornado touched down Tuesday.

FOX 8 reports the funnel cloud hit New Orleans East, damaging neighborhood homes and businesses, and leaving at least 10,000 residents without power.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports dozens of injuries have been reported, but no deaths as of about 1 p.m. CST. The damage has also led to some highway closures in the area.

One video, tweeted by Homer A. Plessy Community School in New Orleans, shows a teacher occupying young students by singing and playing guitar while they shelter in place. Watch it here:

Plessy is a public charter school, that serves Pre-K through fourth grade currently.
