Texas tornadoes: Eleven killed in Dallas area

Eleven people have been killed in tornadoes in Texas, police say, with heavy rain and snow causing deaths and disruption in a number of other states.
At least eight people died in Garland, near Dallas, five of them when their cars were blown off a motorway.
In west Texas, snow combined with high winds to cause drifts that left a number of roads impassable.
Heavy rains have caused flooding further north, leaving 12 people dead in Missouri and Illinois.
The storms across the south have been unusually powerful for winter.
Reports from Texas said churches were destroyed, cars mangled and trees toppled across a 64km (40 mile) zone from south of Dallas up to suburbs in the north-east.
