At Least 6 Dead After Tornadoes Rip Through North Texas

At least six people were killed and dozens more injured after tornadoes ripped through parts of North Texas destroying homes, officials said.

More than 100 homes suffered damage in the Rancho Brazos subdivision near Granbury, Texas, where the six people were killed, Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds said. The death toll could climb because parts of the subdivision are “heavily damaged” or “completely destroyed” after three tornadoes ripped through the area around 8 p.m. local time Wednesday, he said.

Deeds said officials were trying to account for 14 people, but it was not clear if they were missing or were away from the area when the storms swept through. Many of the homes in the subdivision were built by Habitat for Humanity, Deeds said.
