Tornadoes killed five people east of Dallas in Texas as heavy rains and damaging winds struck a broad swath of the U.S. heartland. At least three tornadoes were confirmed by the National Weather Service in nearby Canton, with about 50 people being treated for related injuries at area hospitals. Pictures and video posted online showed cars flipped over and two story houses in the area all but destroyed.  Downpours that began on Friday were so intense the ground was unable to absorb the rainfall, making flooding highly likely.
