DALLAS: Devastating storms including tornadoes have claimed at least 11 lives in Texas, with the disaster striking hard at a mobile home park among other areas. The chaos extended to adjacent states, resulting in deaths and destruction.

Subsequent reports confirmed at least four casualties in neighboring Arkansas and Oklahoma as of late Saturday. 

These violent weather events have disrupted lives across the region, plunging numerous households into darkness due to electrical failures.

In the Lone Star State, the casualties were distributed across Cooke and Denton counties, covering regions from Dallas up to southern Oklahoma. Tragically, the death toll included two young lives, while a community at the Ray Roberts Marina mobile home and RV park suffered significant losses in Valley View. 

The tornadoes’ path was marked by wreckage spreading across a mile and a half area, leaving a scene of sheer destruction.

Four additional lives were taken in the storms in Arkansas and Oklahoma, with each state mourning two victims.
