GRANBURY, Texas (AP) - Forecasters believe North Texas was raked by 10 tornadoes last night, including the one that claimed six lives and destroyed dozens of homes in Granbury. They believe that twister had winds of up to 200 miles an hour.
A county official who visited one neighborhood of about 100 mobile homes and wood structures says they all have significant damage, and as many as half were destroyed.
The county sheriff says seven people remain unaccounted for. Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds says emergency responders are searching parts of Granbury that were left devastated.
