After several storms hit Perryton, at least three people have died and 75–100 have been hurt.

The Ochiltree County Sheriff’s Office says that two other people are missing as well.

Just after 5 p.m. on Thursday, three tornadoes were seen on the ground in Perryton.

Downtown has also taken a lot of damage.

The sheriff’s office said, “We are asking people to stay home and let emergency services do their jobs.” “There is a curfew from midnight to six in the morning. Driving in the damaged areas is slowing things down.”

Debbie Beck, the CFO of Ochiltree General Hospital, told ABC News that the hospital has handled between 50 and 100 people who were hurt by tornadoes.

Dutcher says that the injuries range from minor to serious and that many people have been taken to emergency centers.

Beck said that the hospital didn’t have power, and because they are doing paperwork by hand, they don’t know how many people were hurt by the storm. Beck says that no one died at the hospital and that some patients were moved to Northwest Texas Hospital.

State Rep. Four Price asked people to pray for the people of Perryton. “A tornado hit them earlier this evening, and they will need a lot of help and support.”

Price said that tools are being put together by the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) and the office of Governor Greg Abbott.

Price said, “TDEM is moving everything in that direction, including search and rescue, medical, etc.” “Many buildings are broken. The state is hiring more doctors to help with triage in the ER and putting together a list of tools.”

The post below gives prayer to the Tornado Victims’ families:

Governor Greg Abbott said, “The State of Texas is quickly sending out critical emergency response resources to protect Texans and help those who have been affected by the tornadoes in Perryton.” “I urge all Texans to listen to what state and local officials say and take all the necessary steps to keep themselves and their families safe. We are still ready to help quickly with any extra resources that might be needed during this bad weather event.”

As of 7:45 p.m. Thursday, Xcel Energy said that 4,554 people were still without power.

Damage is being looked at by crews.

Wes Reeves said, “There is no power in the city right now because facilities have been turned off for safety reasons.” “The transmission lines that bring electricity to the city have been damaged, and there are a lot of downed lower-voltage distribution lines in the city.” We don’t yet know how long it will take to fix it.

The gym at Perryton ISD became a place to go in case of an emergency.

Cole Underwood, who is in charge of sports, said that they have showers and blankets. food, batteries, and anything else someone might need.

Generators are being worked on for the area.

At the Ochiltree County Expo Center and the Community Worship Center, there are also shelters set up.
