Video: Tornado destroys North Texas suburbs

(KTVT)-

Six people were killed after powerful tornadoes swept through North Texas.

Officials say that number could go up as crews survey the damage.

The national weather service says at least 10 tornadoes touched down overnight.

Pastor dean porter was leading a bible study when hail started raining down on the church.

He describes what happened next.

“We
were watching the whole thing unfold in front of the church. At this
particular point the clouds, about the time the first tornado came and
touched down, what we were seeing in front of us was a formation of the
tornado in the sky. Funnel cloud began to form, and the — the debris
was being pulled up into a rotation which is kind of what tripped us
into bringing everybody back inside and getting everybody underneath the
tables.”

Rescue crews are searching for several people reported missing.
