At least 6 confirmed dead in Texas tornado

GRANBURY, Texas — A tornado outbreak Wednesday night killed at least six people in parts of North Texas, destroying or damaging homes and injuring dozens of people.

‘Some were found in houses. Some were found around houses,’’ Deeds said, adding the total could climb as crews pick through the rubble.

As many as 100 people were injured, said Matt Zavadsky, spokesman for MedStar Mobile Healthcare.

The same storm spawned another tornado that storm spotters told the National Weather Service was a mile wide. That twister tore through part of Cleburne, about 25 miles southeast of Granbury. There were no reports of deaths in that storm.
