Dallas, TX (AHN) - The southwest is still in shock after a spring storm hit the area leaving nine dead. Six Texas residents and three residents of Mexico were killed Tuesday night after a severe spring storm created a tornado along the Texas-Mexico border. At least 74 people were injured in Texas, four of them critically, and at least 40 were injured in Mexico.
The six Texas deaths occurred a few miles south of Eagle Pass, located about 150 miles southwest of San Antonio. Apparently four of them were inside one mobile home, AP reports Eagle Pass Mayor Chad Foster said.
More than 20 homes and the Eagle Pass municipal sewer treatment plant were demolished, along with an vacant elementary school.
Oscar Murillo, the civil protection director of Piedras Negras, Mexico, said dozens of homes and cars were damaged and power poles were knocked down.
American Airlines spokesman Billy Sanez said about 200 flights were canceled in Dallas because of the storms and about 80 flights in route to the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport were diverted to other airports.
