Video Shows Deadly Tornado Destroy Texas Gas Station With People Inside

Videos shared on social media show the moment a deadly tornado ripped through a Texas truck stop as more than 60 people sought shelter inside as severe weather battered the central U.S. on Sunday.
Powerful tornadoes wreaked havoc during early morning storms, which killed more than a dozen people and caused widespread destruction in parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kentucky, according to state and local officials.
At least 15 people were killed – seven in Texas, five in Arkansas, two in Oklahoma and one in Kentucky – by the severe storms that also left dozens of people injured and numerous homes and businesses reduced to rubble, the Associated Press reported.
During a press conference on Sunday that was held in front of a truck stop destroyed by a tornado, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the storm hit the northern part of the Lonestar State hard. All seven deaths were reported in Cooke County after at least one powerful tornado tore through the area, the governor said.
