Texas Tornadoes: 18-Wheelers Flying

The video below is raw footage of one of the tornadoes in the Dallas area today, near 1-20 and Bonnie View Road. You can see 18-wheelers flying through the air. At about 4 minutes-in you see closeups of some of the damage. At this time I’m seeing no reports of death or injury, but surely there must be at least injuries, and lots of loss of property.

The city of Lancaster, 20 miles south of Dallas, was the worst hit, absorbing “extensive damage,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, who heads the County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. In the Dallas suburb of Mesquite, a Speedy Oil Change and Tune-Up shop was completely destroyed and other buildings damaged. Source: Tuscon Citizen

    Your first pic is not a tornado in Texas. I think it was taken in Alabama April 27,2011.
