Officials report a tornado caused "multiple fatalities" as it tore through two neighborhoods of a North Texas town.
The tornado hit the scenic Brazos River courthouse town of Granbury about 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Hood County sheriff's Lt. Kathy Jiveden reported the multiple fatalities, but she had no estimate of dead or injured.
She said crews "are going house to house" looking for those trapped, injured or dead in the rubble of demolished homes in the DeCordova Ranch and Rancho Brazos Estates neighborhoods.
Those areas are in the southern part of the town of about 8,000 residents near Lake Granbury.
