Severe Weather in Dallas/Ft. Worth
A still shot of 2 trailers tossed in the air, one is dead center, one is to the left, standing straight up and down, WAY up in the air!
The below video is very annoying with the storm alert going off and there is a short ad that has to be viewed, but turn the volume down and watch on a FULL SCREEN and see what it looks like as tractor/trailer rigs are tossed through the air.
So far this storm has gone to the east of Rowlett, and we THANK GOD for that. We are sending out prayers for our friends and neighbors in the other communities in our area.
I will have more updates on this as they come in, provided I am not a part OF the story.
