Tornadoes Hit Dallas

Four tornadoes, spawned by Tropical Depression Hermine, touched down near Dallas, Texas this evening.

Rescue workers across central and north Texas spent the evening helping people who became stranded by fast-rising floodwater caused by downpours from Hermine as it slogged northward.

From CNN:

Sirens went off in downtown Dallas as one funnel cloud was spotted in Cockrell Hill southwest of downtown, according to CNN affiliate WFAA.

One tornado was reported in Ellis County and three in Dallas County, according to CNN meteorologist Taylor Ward.

Aerial footage from the area showed buildings in an industrial complex with walls knocked down and roofs blown off. One tractor-trailer truck in a parking lot had the trailer’s roof caved in by cement blocks blown from a nearby building.

    Saw some Footage on TV. Was pretty bad. Don’t hear of this kind of thing happening in Texas. Seems anymore these Tornados and/or Hurricanes are hitting new and different places all the time.
