National Weather Service says at least 16 tornadoes touched down in Texas – Victor Blackwell reports

People in the neighborhoods hardest hit by tornadoes in Texas are not being allowed back to survey the damage this morning. Resident Ronna Cotten said she was told that she can't re-enter her subdivision to "check to see if we have any belongings left" for at least two days, maybe as many as seven.

The National Weather Service says at least 16 tornadoes touched down and those who have seen the scope of the damage firsthand say it is surreal and extensive. This morning Victor Blackwell has the latest on the aftermath and the missing from Granbury, Texas.
