High winds around noon Sunday knocked down an awning that covers the gas pumps at the 7-Eleven store at the corner of University Drive and Malone Street in Denton.

Strong, straight-line winds snapped the support poles of the awning that covered the gas pumps.

"I heard a bang, then a boom," said Sushma Patel, who was working the cash register at the convenience store she owns.
