"Please keep the community of Alto in your thoughts, along with all others affected by this disaster," the site said in a post on social media. The site is home to a historic Caddo village that dates back more than 1,200 years. It's located outside of the town of Alto in east central Texas. The Caddo Nation once lived on a reservation in Texas but was forced to move to present-day Oklahoma in the late 1800s.
