North Texas residents who were reported missing after an outbreak of severe tornadoes Wednesday have all been found alive.
Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds said Friday that all missing people are accounted for, and the death toll is unlikely to rise above six adults.
Surveying the extensive destruction in Granbury, Texas, residents and volunteers say they are surprised that more people were not killed or seriously injured.
“Most of the homes had people in them when the tornado hit, and most of the people said they couldn’t believe what happened. The American Legion Hall at the bottom of the hill looked like a triage scene from 'M*A*S*H.' ”
