Residents of the Dallas metro area are spending the first days of 2016 attempting to rebuild their lives after devastating tornadoes tore through the area just days after Christmas, killing 11 and damaging or destroying thousands of homes.
Severe storms hit the U.S. South, Southwest and Midwest over the Christmas holiday weekend, unleashing floods and tornadoes that killed at least 43 people, flattened buildings and snarled transportation for millions during a busy travel time.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been evacuated in the central Philippines, where a fierce storm is lashing coastal areas with heavy wind and rain. According to The Guardian news outlet, three people have been killed and millions are left without power.
