Eagle Pass] - Five members of an Eagle Pass-area family were among seven people killed when an overnight tornado

stormed through the area. At least three other people were killed just across the Rio

Grande in Piedras Negras, Mexico.

The five dead family members included a couple, a daughter between the ages of four and six, and two adult relatives. They were killed when the killer wind slammed their mobile home into the Rosita Valley Elementary School.

Officials say at least 76 other were hurt in the Eagle Pass area

and at least 80 others in Piedras Negras.

Besides destroying the Rosita Valley school, the storm ripped apart a nearby preschool and more than 20 nearby homes. The Eagle Pass municipal sewer treatment plant also suffered severe damage.

The National Weather Service confirmed that a tornado struck a few miles south of Eagle Pass, about 130 miles southwest of San Antonio, just after 7 p-m Central time.

National Guard units and the Border Patrol are among 130 people

participating in search, rescue and recovery efforts.
