While the precise cause of the accident was not immediately determined, Evans said there was a "strong possibility that yes, the wind did play some role in the collapse of the crane itself".

Two people were in critical condition, three were in serious condition and one person had already been released from the hospital, authorities said.

Fallen trees, downed power lines and damage to homes and businesses are the kinds of damage being seen through areas like Dallas County.

The sister of a woman killed after a crane collapsed on an apartment building in Dallas says she was a resident of the building.

The U.S. National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area until 7 p.m. Sunday, warning of heavy rain, damaging gusts, and large hail.

Two people have reportedly been rescued and hospitalized.

"It felt like a year", Mrs Bosquez said.

The falling crane tore a large gash into the east side building and destroyed much of an adjacent parking garage.

The crane also crushed a portion of a local parking garage.
