At Least 6 Dead in Texas Tornado

GRANBURY, Texas — Officials say at least six people were killed when a spring  tornado outbreak devastated parts of North Texas, destroying or damaging dozens of homes and injuring dozens of people. The worst-hit city Wednesday was Granbury, where authorities say the fatalities occurred as the deadly  tornado tore through two neighborhoods. Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds delivered the death toll at a midnight news conference and said dozens were injured. 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.
