GREENVILLE (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Severe weather in North Texas injured five and severely damaged several homes and businesses on Thursday night, leaving many without power.

Officials with an ambulance service in the Greenville area, 45 miles northeast of Dallas, on Friday reported five individuals taken to hospitals.

Michael Shields with American Medical Response says nobody suffered injuries believed to be life-threatening in Thursday night’s storms.

Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks originally said four people were hurt when a suspected tornado destroyed a farmhouse and a mobile home near Merit. Shields on Friday said the number of injured had reached five. He didn’t provide details on the patients.

As of Friday morning, nearly 1,300 customers remain without power near the communities of Celeste and Greenville due to downed wires and poles.

The Denton area Thursday had hail the size of grapefruits.
