At least one person is dead in crane collapse in Downtown Dallas

Jason Evans, a spokesman with Dallas Fire-Rescue Department, said five of the wounded were in serious and critical condition.

"We're hoping that what we have at this point is where it ends" in terms of casualties, Evans said during the televised news briefing.

Severe thunderstorms capable of damaging winds, large hail and potential tornadoes were blowing Sunday through downtown Dallas and nearby Fort Worth, the National Weather Service said.

At least two people have been hospitalized after a crane collapsed on an apartment building in Dallas amid severe thunderstorms.

"It was like a sunny, attractive day and people were at the pool", she said.

The tower's parking garage was also damaged, and search and rescue efforts are still ongoing. I don't even know how to describe it.

Apartment management on Sunday evening were still working to account for all residents, but there were no reports of missing people, Evans said.

Allen told the paper he saw a bloodied woman trapped in her apartment on the second floor.

There were also reports of hail damage to windows in Richardson and Collin County, and hail measuring about 1.5 inches was reported in Garland, National Weather Service meteorologist Joey Picca said. "The same system produced localized flash flooding and strong storms with high winds in Oklahoma City during the morning". It wasn't clear how many floors in the garage collapsed.

It took about 30 minutes for authorities to tell her that her husband had been rescued alive and had been holding their dog while medics worked on his injuries.

The DFW Scanner, a news blog dedicated to informing the North Texas and Dallas area of emergency and public safety alerts, posted a photo of the damage on its official Twitter page.
