Any resident dealing with storm damage is asked to fill out an assessment form online.

GRAPEVINE, Texas — Multiple North Texas cities are dealing with serious damages after a line of severe weather traveled through the area Tuesday morning. 

Authorities in Grapevine are now cleaning up their city due to the destruction caused by a tornado. 

Officials reported five people that were injured as a result.

Photos posted on social media and shared by WFAA viewers show some of the extreme damages to the area.

Viewer Gail Fuqua sent pictures of a car wash that was destroyed on Dove Road and Northwest Highway. WFAA's Cynthia Izaguirre reported downed powerlines and heavy traffic in that area due to onlookers.

The Grapevine Mills Mall has also closed for the day due to the storm damage. So, too, have the local Walmart and Sam's Club stores. 

Police said they've also shut down several city roads to keep people away from debris and downed powerlines.

Grapevine Middle School also had to evacuate students from the building due to roof damage and a water leak. They were taken to First United Methodist Church for parents to pick them up. Cannon and Dove Elementary Schools ended early so parents could pick up their kids.

Any Grapevine resident that's dealing with damage from Tuesday's tornado is encouraged to complete an online Damage Survey from the state's Emergency Management.
