A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect for Lee county through this evening. Rain & thunderstorms will continue to be possible for the Brazos Valley, through the evening and overnight hours. Severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out -- damaging winds, large hail, and even an isolated tornado threat will need to be monitored.
The largest nonprofit group in a North Texas county where a tornado left six people dead will organize local donations for recovery.
Hood County officials say Wednesday night's tornado destroyed dozens of homes in Granbury.
April Mitchell with Mission Granbury, Inc. said Thursday that the group will be helped by churches in the community about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
People wishing to donate supplies and other emergency items can call Mission Granbury at 817-579-6866.
Mitchell says Mission Granbury last year served nearly 26,000 individuals with assistance for crime victims, a food bank, housing and financial services.
The Red Cross is also providing tornado recovery assistance.
