GRANBURY, Texas — Residents of a North Texas town ravaged by a deadly tornado are starting to return to home for the first time since the midweek storm.
The process is slow because several hundred people showed up early Saturday to register at a Granbury church. The registration is required to return to the neighborhood.
Only residents of Rancho Brazos Estates and a few friends and relatives are being permitted into the area.
Granbury bore the brunt of an outbreak Wednesday night of 16 tornadoes that swept through North Texas. Six people were killed and dozens injured in the town about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Lonny Haschel says cars must pass through a three-lane checkpoint to enter the area.
