Granbury, Texas — about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth — was the worst-hit city. As of Thursday morning, at least six people were confirmed dead across the state in the spring storm eruption.

Eye-witnesses in the hardest hit areas claimed to see trailers thrown up into the air, cars piled up on top of other cars, and dozens of homes completely flattened, according to the Christian Post and the Associated Press.

In Granbury, one tornado hit two suburban neighborhoods at about 8 p.m. local time. According to reports, residents described seeing hail stones as big as large as baseballs falling as the tornado arrived, sparking panicked scenes as locals rushed for shelter.
