The Texas Department of Public Safety says at least one person has died in severe weather in Grayson County, near the Oklahoma border. Texas Task Force Two responded to the area overnight to lead search and rescue missions.
Grayson County Emergency Management says ten people were taken to hospitals after the storms. Several others were hurt in Kingston, in southern Oklahoma, but no deaths were reported there.
The Grayson County Office of Emergency Management will survey damage Tuesday with the National Weather Service.
"Please help our first responders, search and rescue teams and utility crews by staying away from the area tonight AND [Tuesday]," Grayson County OEM wrote in a Facebook post.
Grayson County OEM and the Sherwood Shores Volunteer Fire Department are asking people to avoid areas with damage while search and rescue teams and utility crews are working.
"Our area was hit hard by the storm and we are working multiple incidents. We have lots of mutual aid responding. Please help us by staying off the roads so emergency personnel can do their job," Sherwood Shores Volunteer Fire Department wrote on Facebook.
