GRANBURY, Texas — Rescue crews searched Thursday for seven people missing after overnight tornadoes struck North Texas, killing at least six.

“We’re still working to identify people,” Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds told reporters about the fatalities, all of whom were adults.

It was not clear whether the toll would rise. Rescue crews had walked through one subdivision in the city of Granbury “over and over and over again,” he said. “I’m confident we haven’t left anybody behind, but we’re still checking.” Granbury is 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

The six victims were in a Habitat for Humanity neighborhood of about 110 homes — most of which were destroyed — called the Rancho Brazos subdivision, the sheriff said. That is where the missing were last seen, too, he said.
