Troubling questions about the Ebola cleanup in Dallas

Towels and sheets used by Thomas Duncan before he was diagnosed with Ebola spent days sitting in the Dallas apartment where he stayed. His partner, Louise, along with some of her family had until recently been quarantined inside that apartment. Gary Tuchman was there today when cleaning crews went inside to spray and remove items. What he saw is raising questions about the safety of those living nearby.

Anderson spoke with Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and asked whether enough was done to ensure neighbors were kept safe during the cleaning of that apartment.

Tonight on AC360: Man reunited with best friend after tornadoes

At 8 p.m. ET tonight, Randi Kaye has a heartwarming story about a man reunited with his best friend, a pit bull named Junior, after the Texas tornadoes. Jerry Shuttlesworth wasn't sure if he would ever see his dog again. The two were separated in the powerful winds.

Like Junior, hundreds of pets were left homeless after the storm. A local shelter has been trying to connect them with their owners, but it's a difficult task without cell phone service and many residents displaced.

The National Weather Service said at least 16 tornadoes are responsible for the deadly force that completely destroyed homes and buildings in North Texas. At least six people lost their lives.
