Eight confirmed dead in storms in Garland and Collin County, 50,000 without power across North Texas

Five deaths occurred in Garland in what police say were tornado-related traffic accidents near Interstate 30 and Bush Turnpike.

Joe Harn, a department spokesman, tied the fatalities to a confirmed tornado that hit that area about 6:45 p.m.
