Of those injured, two were listed in critical condition, three had suffered serious injuries and one suffered minor injuries and was later discharged from a hospital, Evans said.

It wasn't immediately clear whether any other people were missing or trapped in the building or the nearby parking garage, which also collapsed.

By 4 p.m., the storm had moved south of Dallas, leaving a mess of downed trees, some street flooding and other wind damage across the metropolitan area.

"There has never been a crane collapse onto an already inhabited building, as far as I know", Evans said Sunday.
