(Reuters) – At least three people were killed and a dozen buildings damaged in a tornado that hit the northern Texas town of Matador on Wednesday, The New York Times reported.

The damage prompted a search for people who may have been injured or trapped by debris, the report added, citing authorities.

The National Weather Service issued a warning around 8 p.m. of a tornado heading toward Matador and urged residents to take shelter.
