5 Killed in North Texas Tornado Over Memorial Day Weekend


A North Texas sheriff confirmed the deaths of at least five people in a tornado that struck two counties during the Memorial Day weekend. At least 20 others were injured in the Saturday-night storm.

Fox 4 Dallas reported that two of the deceased were found in a mobile home park. Dozens more survived by taking shelter in a travel center along I-35.

NBCDFW reporter Alanna Quillen said about 60-80 people took shelter when the deadly tornado struck an RV park.

Photos taken by a Fox 4 News helicopter crew show the absolute devastation of a North Texas community on Sunday morning.

Two women miraculously survived after accidentally driving into the path of the tornado. The video, posted on social media by WFAA ABC8, captures the terrorizing moments as the tornado passes.

The storm also struck neighboring Denton County where fire department officials rescued victims from a marina on Lake Ray Roberts.

Emergency crews, including Texas Task Force One Search and Rescue, continue searching for survivors of the deadly Memorial Day weekend tornado.
