First up today, parts of Texas are recovering from severe weather they hit on Wednesday.
The National Weather Service says at least ten tornadoes touched down in the area.
The U.S. gets more tornadoes per year than any other country.
These storms can show up any time,
but the peak months are April, May and June.
The ones that hit North Texas killed at least six people.
Rescue crews were searching for others who were missing yesterday.
Officials say the victims were in this neighborhood,
most of the homes there were destroyed,
you can see some foundations where the buildings are just completely gone,
and some of the homes that are standing like these ones still got massive damage.
Recovery efforts could take a while.

Following up now in a couple of government stories.
Earlier this week, we reported on a scandal involving the IRS.
The agency admitted that when groups from the Tea Party Movement and other conservative groups applied for a tax exempt status,
their applications were targeted for extra review.
It was basically political bias .
You can get all the details on what happened in the transcript from Monday's show.
The acting commissioner of the IRS was forced to resign this week because of the scandal.
The reaction from across Washington, outrage.
Whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or Independent in this country,
to take the abuse of a $3.8 trillion government,
the power of that government and to use it to stifle opposition is profoundly un-American.
It shouldn't matter what political stride you're from,
the fact of the matter is that the IRS has to operate with absolute integrity.
The government generally has to conduct itself in a way that is true to the public trust,
that's especially true for the IRS.
It's inexcusable and Americans are right to be angry about it.
There are laws in place to prevent this type of abuse.
My question isn't about who's going to resign, my question is who's going to jail over this scandal.
The other follow-up is about a terrorist attack against the U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya last year.
