Damage was estimated at up to $20 million after a pair of tornadoes destroyed hundreds of homes, killing one person and injuring 100 in Sweetwater, Tex. Gov. Mark White toured the city to see what state aid was needed and said he would announce later whether Sweetwater should be declared a disaster area. As many as 1,500 of Sweetwater’s 12,000 residents were left homeless, Mayor Rick Rhodes said. An overnight curfew was posted to prevent looting.
