GREENVILLE, Texas (AP) - Five people have been slightly hurt and hundreds of homes and businesses lost power after North Texas thunderstorms destroyed some structures.

Officials with an ambulance service in the Greenville area, 45 miles northeast of Dallas, on Friday reported five individuals taken to hospitals.

Michael Shields with American Medical Response says nobody suffered injuries believed to be life-threatening in Thursday night's storms.

Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks originally said four people were hurt when a suspected tornado destroyed a farmhouse and a mobile home near Merit. Shields on Friday said the number of injured had reached five. He didn't provide details on the patients.

Electric provider Oncor on Friday reported more than 1,200 outages, mainly in the Hunt County area.

The Denton area Thursday had hail the size of grapefruits.
