Tornado-Ravaged Texas Town to Start Recovery

Residents whose homes were torn apart or blown away by a North Texas deadly tornado will soon be allowed to return to retrieve what belongings may be left and start cleaning up.

The Hood County Sheriff says residents of Rancho Brazos Estates in Granbury will be able to go back in to survey things starting Saturday morning.

The neighborhood was the hardest hit by Wednesday night’s EF-4 tornado, with winds between 166 and 200 mph. Workers are trying to restore water service, raise electrical lines and clear debris piles.

Gov. Rick Perry toured Granbury, which bore the brunt of the damage during an outbreak of 16 tornadoes across North Texas. Perry said the devastation is almost incomprehensible.

Earlier Friday, the Hood County Sheriff’s Office said the death toll is unlikely to change, as those who were reported missing were with relatives or friends and are safe. Six people were killed.
