DALLAS, Tex. – At least 11 people have died in Texas due to severe storms.

Garland Police Lt. Pedro Barineau said at least three people who died were found in vehicles.

He also said that some cars appeared to be thrown from Interstate 30 and George Bush Turnpike when the tornado hit about 6:45 p.m. Saturday. It wasn’t known whether that was the case for the people found in the vehicles.

Eight people died and 15 were injured in Garland, which is about 20 miles northeast of Dallas. That death toll went up by three since Saturday night.

About 600 structures were damaged, the majority of which were single-family homes. Barineau said that it’s “total devastation.”
