GRANBURY, Texas -- Authorities in Hood County announced Friday that there are no more people reported missing after an EF-4 tornado left six people dead and the whereabouts of over a dozen people unknown.

"At this time, there are no missing people reported to officials," said Sheriff Roger Deeds, of Hood County, in a statement released Friday morning.

Meanwhile, many survivors are working to get back to see what's left of their homes.

Work continued to clear debris in two Granbury neighborhoods devastated in the Wednesday storms.
We met families thankful to be alive and are ready to get back home.

Crews have been working with various companies to restore utilities to the affected areas, but there's still no exact word on when they will re-open the area.

The governor is expected to tour the devastated area at about 3 p.m. Friday.
