Transcript for Mayor on Tornadoes: 'We're Hoping for the Best'
Let's bring in the mayor pro-tem of granbury, texas, nen hewlett who has been on the scene all night and joins us right now. Mr. Mayor, our sincere condolences to all the families who lost loved ones. I know it's been a very busy night. Can you give us the latest? Yeah, it has been a very busy night for all the folks out here in this community. It's devastating. Our highest priority try to get the people out there in those communities under a shelter somewhere and to protect them and also to get accountability on some of the people that have not been accounted for right now, so it's really been devastating out here. We've got our counties working real hard on this. We got city officials and city police in there that are also helping out. The whole community has come together right now and hopefully by daybreak we can get in there and clean this up and try to rescue the people and get everybody in a safe environment right now. That's our key priority right now. And everyone, as you said, working so hard together, mr. Mayor. You talk about the accountability of people. Is there fear that some people may still be trapped? We don't really feel that. We think we've accounted for most of them or all the people right now. Some we haven't accounted for we actually feel like they weren't at their homes at this time and that hopefully we're hoping for the best for that but there's still that possibility when we go in here and during daybreak and try to clean up some of the rubble here. How much warning did everybody have, mr. Mayor? Pretty much I think most of the people had about the same warning throughout the city, they had anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes. The sirens sounded off. I know myself I was on the golf course and heard it -- heard the sirens go off and headed to the clubhouse. Before you could even get to the clubhouse, we had a pretty good size hail falling out of the sky and a lot of high winds. Well, mayor pro tem nin hulett, thank you. All the best to you. Thank you very much.
