At least six people were killed and dozens more injured after tornadoes ripped through parts of North Texas destroying homes. Seven people are still missing in the town of Granbury. Take a look at images of the damage.
Granbury, a town of 8,000, sits about 35 miles southwest of Dallas-Fort Worth.
The National Weather Service classified the Granbury storm as an EF-4, with winds reaching up to 200 miles per hour.
County officials say nearly 100 homes in Granbury were damaged or destroyed.
The tornado in Granbury was part of a massive system of severe thunderstorms that spawned several tornadoes across North Texas, dropping large hail stones in some areas.
The National Weather Service estimates that 10 tornadoes may have touched down. The series of storms and tornadoes is the worst severe storm outbreak in the United States so far this year.
More than 250 people were evacuated from the heavily damaged Rancho Brazos neighborhood, southeast of Granbury, according to Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds.
Tornadoes also touched down in the towns of Cleburne and Millsap and across the region around Dallas and Fort Worth, leaving damaged homes and an altered landscape.
Many injured people were brought to the Lake Granbury Medical Center and Fort Worth trauma centers. Patients came in with severe lacerations and broken bones, including spinal fractures and skull fractures.
Wayne McKethan, Granbury’s city manager, stated that "Search and rescue is over. We're now in search and recovery," that is looking for the dead.
Gov. Rick Perry afternoon plans to visit Granbury today and survey the destruction.
