FORNEY, Texas (AP) - City leaders and weather experts will inspect Dallas-area locations where tornadoes damaged hundreds of homes.
Lancaster (LAYN'-kuh-stur) Mayor Marcus Knight said Wednesday that the main goal is to try to assess the nature and severity of the damage. Storm damage has also been reported in Forney and Arlington.
Experts from the National Weather Service on Wednesday morning began their own storm assessment. Forecasters have said Tuesday's violent weather generated as many as a dozen twisters.
The Red Cross has estimated that about 650 homes in North Texas were damaged, with some structures a total loss.
