And now, to north texas, battered by that outbreak of tornadoes. 16 in all. And tonight, there is word that all the missing have been accounted for. But as we head into this weekend, a new warning. Everyone scanning the hor ri everyone scanning the hor zon for still more storms. And abc's steve osunsami has the latest. Reporter: These new pictures show what these small texas towns are recovering from, and what could still be coming. Tornadoes that filled the sky, destroying homes and lives. The falling hail, so fast and furious, this truck that went sliding on a highway didn't stand a chance. This was a subdivision in grandbury, texas, before the storm. And here's what the tornado left behind. This was a house on tumbleweed lane before wednesday. And then after. See that house right there? It's gone. Reporter: Today, texas governor rick perry came to town and promised to help families. The houses will be rebuilt. But there's no replacing those loved ones who were lost. Reporter: Many of those crumbled homes he saw were built for the needy by volunteers. Today, habitat for humanity told us they'll rebuild. We're not going to turn our backs on them, no, absolutely not. Reporter: The weather could bring y this weekend. These areas could see severe thunderstorms that could bring large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes. It's graduation season, and something for families to keep in mind. We saw what happened last year when storm clouds opened up over an outdoor graduation in new jersey -- and everyone panicked. Oh, my god. Reporter: Experts remind families to stay away from metal and trees when outside in a storm and be aware of possible debris from high winds. If you cannot find shelter, we recommend you make yourself as small of a target as possible, curl into a ball and hover close to the ground. Reporter: Simple steps that could save your life. The family that lived here was like so many others, they hid in a bathroom to stay alive. Look at what's left of their kitchen. It looks like a tornado hit it, but didn't touch some items. It ripped off the roof, sending it into the streets. And this is what's left of their living room. Furniture that was moved over, knocked down by the high winds. It will take many of the families here months to rebuild and that entire time, they may have to live in shelters.
