Residents of tornado-ravaged North Texas town returning home

GRANBURY, Texas (AP) -- Residents of a North Texas town ravaged by a deadly tornado are starting to return to home for the first time since the midweek storm.

Only residents of Rancho Brazos Estates and a few friends and relatives are being permitted into the area.

The process is slow because several hundred people showed up early today to register at a Granbury church.

The registration is required to return.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says cars must pass through a three-lane checkpoint to enter the neighborhood.

Granbury bore the brunt of an outbreak of 16 tornadoes that swept through North Texas on Wednesday night. Six people were killed and dozens injured in the town about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
