Tornadoes tear through Texas killing 6

Six people have died as storms have sparked as many as 10 tornadoes across northern Texas.

The hardest hit areas are the two neighborhoods of Rancho Brazos Estates and DeCordova Ranch, approximately 100 kilometres from Dallas.

Around 100 people were hurt after the tornadoes tore across the northern part of the second largest US state.

Authorities are searching for at least 14 people.

“The house started shaking. We were in a closet. You could hear it – it sounded like a train going off. It was scary,” one man told a reporter.

More than 100 homes have been destroyed.

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for more than 30 counties in Texas.
