Hood County officials hope to know by the end of the week if the tornado-devastated Rancho Brazos neighborhood will qualify for federal assistance through FEMA. Right now, the front line of relief is a large cadre of community volunteers.
10:00 a.m.: Dallas Fire Rescue's Task Force 2 Search and Rescue worked overnight searching the rubble of the Rancho Brazos neighborhood ripped apart by one of several tornadoes that roared through North Texas. Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds says the rescue crew did not find any survivors or additional casualties. And he is hopeful the seven people still listed as missing are safe and will check in.
At 9:00 pm WFAA-TV is reporting helicopters are being requested to evacuate injured patients in the Lake Granbury area.
KXAS-TV is reporting that in the Rancho Brazos subdivision along Lake Granbury a triage center has been set up to care for residents injured in the storm and school buses are being used to help transport injured people.
