Thousands are still without power and hundreds of homes are damaged after tornadoes ripped across Dallas and Fort Worth.

The National Weather Service planned to survey the destruction Wednesday before saying exactly how many tornadoes swept through the region.

Early reports gathered by meteorologists indicated that as many as a dozen twisters touched down during a wrecking-ball swath of violent weather Tuesday.

Despite the intensity of the slow-moving storms, as of late Tuesday no fatalities or serious injuries had been reported, though there were several less serious injuries.

The Red Cross put a preliminary estimate of damaged homes at 650.

Among the hardest cities hit was the southern Dallas suburb of Lancaster. Around 150 people remained in a shelter there late Tuesday.
