No Casualties From Texas Tornadoes
Everyone in Dallas better be thanking their high heavens right now.
Tractor-trailers weighing tens of thousands of pounds flew through the air. Roofs were ripped off homes, and other houses were left in complete tatters.
Yet no deaths have been reported after devastating tornadoes worked their way through the Dallas-Forth Worth and Arlington areas of Texas.
“It looks like the Dallas-Fort Worth area really dodged a bullet,” Dallas Mayor Michael Rawlings told CNN. “I mean we’ve got hundreds and hundreds of homes destroyed but amazingly no fatalities.”
Between six and 13 tornadoes may have touched down Tuesday in north Texas, the National Weather Service in Dallas-Fort Worth said. The number is an estimate pending a survey and damage assessment.
Rawlings said that as he looked at footage of tractor-trailers tossed about like lightweight toys, he was struck by how lucky it was nobody died.
13 tornadoes and everyone came out without losing a life. We just hope this storm passes the rest of the way with the same results.
