We've pulled together some of videos from storm chasers and residents to give you a sense of the terrifying twisters, but there are some photos from locals here too.
Tornado hunters Shane Adams and Bridget Geaughan took footage of the tornado near Aledo (Content Warning: Some strong language as the storm chaser is angry he missed the first half):
This footage from Millsap and other towns shows baseball-size hail, stunning views of the "insane" tornado and some of the damage it caused:
Here's a distant look at a twister from a Granbury backyard:
This is another view from a Granbury backyard but it gives you quite a sense of how loud the tornado was (it's loud enough that you might want to turn down your volume a few notches). Also make note of the white caps the wind is creating on the lake:
These videos give a sense of some of the damage to the area and loss of life.

Officials report the tornado caused "multiple fatalities" as it tore through two neighborhoods of a North Texas town. Hood County sheriff's Lt. Kathy Jiveden reported the multiple fatalities, but she had no estimate of dead or injured. (Photo: AP/Mike Fuentes)
All who died as a result of the storm thus far were from Granbury. Between 50 and 100 additional people from this town were taken to the hospital with injuries.
