AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - An industry group says insured damage from last week's deadly tornadoes in North Texas could reach $250 million.
Mark Hanna with the Insurance Council of Texas says the rough estimate could change as insurers continue to gather information from the May 15 storms.
A twister killed six people in Granbury where dozens of homes were damaged. Tornadoes also left behind significant damage in Cleburne.
Hanna on Thursday told The Dallas Morning News that damage was widespread and several Texas counties were affected. The insurance group is also looking at homeowner claims and media reports of damage.
Experts said Granbury, about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth, bore the brunt of the storms when as many as 16 tornadoes swept through North Texas.
