Seven Missing after Texas Tornados

Seven people are still missing following at least 16 devastating tornados that hit North Texas, Wednesday, killing six. According to a survey team evaluating the damage, at least one of the twisters was an EF4—the second-most dangerous class of tornado. It was that lethal tornado which was responsible for all of Wednesday’s deaths, destroying an entire neighborhood in Granbury, Texas and stripping homes—most of which had been built by Habitat for Humanity—off the ground. As the disheveled community begins cleaning up the massive mess the tornados left behind, police continue to search for those still missing.
