Massive cleanup is underway in Texas after 16 tornadoes ripped through the state Wednesday night, leaving at least six people dead and several still missing, CBN News reports. Entire neighborhoods are still cordoned off as rescue teams and police with cadaver dogs search for survivors in the debris. The devastation is spread across four counties near the Dallas-Fort Worth area; the community of Granbury, west of Dallas, saw the most damage, with homes in two neighborhoods obliterated. Several churches have opened their doors as Red Cross shelters for tornado victims and their families. Other relief organizations, including Operation Blessing and Samaritan's Purse, have also sent help.
