A search and rescue operation continues Thursday afternoon for seven people who are still missing after Wednesday night's deadly tornado in Granbury, Texas.

The tornado hit Granbury around 8 p.m. Wednesday, a small lakefront town of 8,000 people located southwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The twister left six people dead, dozens of others injured and more than 100 homes damaged or destroyed. Many of the residents lived in Habitat for Humanity homes built in the last five or so years.
