DALLAS (AP) — The National Weather Service says a likely tornado has caused damage near the North Texas town of Denton.

Meteorologist Tom Bradshaw says the NWS believes a tornado touched down this afternoon near Denton, which is about 40 miles northwest of Dallas.

Bradshaw says roofs were ripped off of buildings and trees were damaged.

Last night, one person was killed and another critically injured when a tornado hit Cisco, a rural farming and ranch area about 100 miles west of Fort Worth. The National Weather Service rated the tornado as an EF-3, with winds ranging from 136 to 165 mph.
