Update: Texas Twisters and Storm Safety Tips


Officials say the list of injured or killed in Wednesday night's tornados in Texas could have been much worse because the tornados were in such highly populated areas. Storm chasers say they saw multiple drivers trying to take cover underneath highway overpasses, which is the worst place to seek shelter because of the force of the winds.
