“My Little Texas Tornado, Blowin’ Me Away Again”

Tuesday, April 3, 2012-

The Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas was slammed today by severe weather that bred several tornadoes and hail ranging from golf ball to tennis ball size. Tornadoes can range from and EF0, the weakest, to EF5, the strongest. National Weather Service crews in Forney spotted storm damage to suggest an EF3 twister with winds up to 165 mph. Other tornadoes spotted in Arlington and Lancaster have appeared to be identified as an EF2 with winds around 135 mph.

Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to the families and businesses who have been affected by this powerful storm front. We hope everyone remains safe as they rummage through the rubble and begin repairs. The National Weather Service predicts this tornado and hail season to be above normal, and Tuesday’s strike suggests that this prediction could be accurate. Below are a few images from the daily activity portion of our website.
