Chief James Woolard told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth as many as five homes were damaged by the storm, and neighbors were looking after the pets left behind as two of the injured residents were taken to the hospitalOne of the victims was in serious to critical condition, the report added. "This is the most extensive damage we've seen," he told NBCDFW.com.

"We asked her where her mother was and she pointed to the direction of the back room of the house," neighbor Jennifer Chezem told NBCDFW.com"So we went to go to try to find her and we were able to locate her foot and my husband was able to start digging debris off of her to get her out."
