Dallas / Fort Worth Tornadoes

Two twisters touched down today South of Dallas, there was extensive damage. Let's hope that no one was seriously hurt.

There is some horrifying video here: U.S. News - 'Tremendous damage' as 2 twisters tear through areas south of Dallas

It was a pretty wild afternoon. We got lucky and the storms passed both east and west of us. It was pretty frightening to be watching the radar and wondering if we were going to have to duck and cover in a few minutes.

Wow - I've never seen semis flying like that. Hoping for the best.

I'm at NTAC in Hillsboro and we're in a Severe T-storm with hail. Didn't sound big enough to do any damage but won't know for sure until it ends.

So far it's looking pretty good. There were a few occupied buildings that got hit in Arlington and the reports at the time were that no one suffered serious injuries. Hopefully that'll hold! We slipped through a gap in the storms here at the house (west Fort Worth) and are hoping it's limited to property damage in the path of the storm.

I just got back to the house in San Antonio after all flights into and out of Dallas were cancelled due to the storms. Looks like I will be missing school tomorrow, but I would rather be safe than sorry. Hope all the Dallas streamers come out without injury and damage.

Disaster declared in Arlington. Baseball size hail in Euless. Schneider semi-trailers flying through the air.

Still Severe T-storm at NTAC in Hillsboro and the warning has been extended to 4:30. But from the map it looks like the worst is over and no more hail so far.

Lancaster got nailed a few years back. Par for the course. Same for some of the northern tier suburbs that are out west. The worst areas are (and will be until an F5 monster forms) on the outskirts, the "edges" of the metro area where the urban heat island effect has a border. From west to east the things tend to dissipate.

If there is plenty of "city" between you and the storm, I wouldn't worry overmuch.

Tornado producing cell passed over the house but all funnels had withdrawn by the time it got to Rowlett. Haven't touched base with our covered storage area yet but its NE of the house so hopefully AS escaped unscathed.

Shane, how are things in your part of Arlington?

Hope all of our ranger friends at Cooper Lake SP to our east as well as the park escape unscathed this afternoon.

Just saw the video on our local news here in Denver. So scary. I think Mother Nature isn't very happy with us these days. I hope everyone is safe.

We are heading to Austin/Fredericksburg, TX this weekend.
