TORONTO – A swarm of tornadoes unleashed on North Texas Wednesday, levelling two neighbourhoods and leaving up to 250 people homeless.

Grapefruit-sized hail pelted the area where one twister claimed at least six lives and injured about 50 people, local officials reported.

Officials awaited daybreak to fully assess the scope of the destruction left in the wake of a tornado.
