GRANBURY, Texas (AP) – A North Texas neighborhood torn apart by a tornado will remain closed to its residents until officials can account for everyone who lived there.
That’s the word from Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds who told reporters Thursday that the search and recovery effort is a “day to day” matter in the Rancho Brazos Estates neighborhood in Granbury.
Deeds said the search in the community about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth will continue “until every piece of debris is turned over.”
Deeds said four men and two women were killed Wednesday. One man and one woman were each in their 80s.
He said six or seven people are still missing, but he was confident they would be found “alive and well.”
