Authorities warn death toll could rise as rubble searched with about 100 people injured as homes destroyed whilst trees were uprooted. The big deal is three separate tornadoes hit near Dallas-Fort Worth. Ride em cowboy.
Dallas, May 16, there were at least six people killed and 100 injured when tornadoes ripped through north-central Texas after dark and authorities said the death toll could rise as rescuers search through the rubble of destroyed homes.
Three twisters were confirmed to have struck on Wednesday night, the deadliest tornadoes to hit the United States so far this year, destroying homes and uprooting trees. The worst damage was reported in Granbury, a town of 8,000 people about 35 miles (56 km) southwest of Dallas-Fort Worth.
Granbury Mayor Pro Tem Nin Hulett told ABC News on Thursday that the top priority “is to try to get the people that are out there in the community under a shelter somewhere” and to account for the missing. Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds said 14 people remained unaccounted for, as rescue workers searched houses.
Well people, there’s your news. Read it and weep. This is tornado alley. RIP whoever is lost. Love truly, America.
