The community of Granbury, located west of Dallas, saw the most damage, with homes in two neighborhoods obliterated.

As many as 100 people were injured as the EF-4 twister packing winds up to 200 miles per hour whipped through.

“Most of that subdivision is heavily damaged to totally destroyed,” Sheriff Roger Deeds of Hood County, Texas, said.

“You could feel it was real calm and all of a sudden, you could just like a vacuum whoah… what’s going on,” one storm survivor recalled.
