At least 6 people were killed; scores more were injured.

At least six people died in the storms and tornadoes that swept through Texas this week; scores more were injured. And hundreds of homes were destroyed.

As our own John Metcalfe reported, this "bizarre" series of storms brought "madly shifting winds" and at least 10 tornadoes to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Below, some scenes of the aftermath.
