At Least 6 Killed, Up to 100 Injured by Texas Tornadoes

Several tornadoes slammed into an area west of the Dallas- Fort Worth region Wednesday night, causing at least six deaths and injuring several dozen.
Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds says one tornado touched down southeast of Granbury Wednesday night in the Rancho Brazos subdivision, destroying mobile homes and single-family homes. Deeds said at six residents were reported killed and up to 100 injured, some critically. The injuries range from lost limbs to minor bumps and bruises, Deeds says.

"There were probably 75 homes in that subdivision that are totally destroyed,'' Deeds said. "We haven't had a bad one like this for a while.''

Hood County Judge Darrell Cockerham told CNN there were reports of houses flattened with people inside.

Officers "are going house to house" looking for residents trapped, injured or dead in the rubble of demolished homes near Lake Granbury, said Hood County Sheriff's Lt. Kathy Jiveden.

The tornado was among several spotted in Texas on Wednesday night and part of a broader storm system that dumped rain and hail up to the size of grapefruit on parts of the state. The National Weather Service to issue storm warnings for 32 counties in Texas and four others in Oklahoma. The tornado watch was in effect until 1 a.m. Thursday.

"This is serious," weather service meteorologists warned via social media. "Take shelter now!"

Granbury, a town of about 8,000 that's 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth, received only minor storm damage, Deeds said. City officials were sending first-responders to check neighborhoods and school buses to help evacuate the area.City officials were sending school buses to several neighborhoods to help with evacuations.The Red Cross set up shelters for tornado victims at two local churches.
