Cleanup has begun from the massive storm system that rolled through the Dallas / Fort Worth metropolitan area yesterday afternoon, generating heavy rain and wind and spawning a number of tornadoes. Amazingly there have been no reports of serious injuries or deaths. Here’s just a sampling of the tempests and the damage left in their wake.
As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, a series of tremendous storms passed over Northeast Texas, hitting the Dallas / Ft. Worth metropolitan area particularly hard. The video below is actual footage of a tornado plowing through a truck yard in Hutchens, just south of Dallas, lifting up many of the trailers like balsa wood. I actually saw this live on CNN earlier today. Some 240 flights at DFW International Airport were cancelled. Fortunately, no one was critically injured, and no deaths have been reported yet. Nothing humbles a person like the power of nature!
