Twister Devastates North Texas

A leader of a North Texas city devastated by a tornado that left six people dead thinks most missing residents have been located.

Granbury Mayor Pro Tem Nin Hulett said Thursday that the highest priority is to get people into shelters.

Hulett appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" just hours after Wednesday night's twister hit the community about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

The Red Cross has opened shelters at two churches in Granbury, where emergency responders initially reported 14 people were unaccounted for.

A specialty search-and-rescue team known as Texas Task Force 2 deployed Thursday from Dallas to assist in Granbury.

  Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says 30 members have been dispatched. The emergency responders also use dogs in their search efforts.
