The National Weather Service now says 16 tornadoes touched down in north central Texas on Wednesday. Initial estimates put that number at 10, however the NWS added six more throughout Thursday afternoon and night.
Six people were killed as a spring tornado outbreak devastated parts of North Texas, destroying or damaging dozens of homes and injuring dozens of people.
In its preliminary findings, the National Weather Service rated the tornado that hit Hood County an EF-4, which is labeled "devastating" by the Enhanced Fujita Scale.
