    Default Dallas Tornados April 2012 ~ Tornados all around me ~ DFW Texas

    Just had some Tornados go over me. I'm south of Fort Worth and on the edge of Mansfield Texas right now. Not a good feeling, saw the video live of those big 53 foot tractor trailers get through around like a deck of cards, just amazing, hope no one was really hurt, but that would be incredible if no one was.

    Here's the rain out by my work. The rain came swirling around us after the Tornado went past us to the west by about 1/4 mile and then it slammed into Kennedale which is just north of us.

    Looks like round two is on the way, we can hear the winds pickup and see the rain coming our way again.

    I was watching that live on CNN. I'm now glad I flew out of Austin (through DFW) about this time yesterday instead of today, as the FAA placed a ground hold on all flights originally bound for DFW ... about 45 mins ago.

    Stay safe.

    It is a bad feeling indeed. We had tornadoes last year here. It leveled our Lowe's home improvement store... Irony! Keep your head down! Stay safe. We are all keeping you in our thoughts!

    Yeah, Steve I saw the tornadoes on Fox news And I thought of you. I wasn't sure if you were close to there or not but I am glad you are okay. I hope everyone else is too. Eyes open and stay safe man.

    I updated the OP in this thread with video from the rain that swirled around us after the tornado passed by.

    Wow. I really hope there aren't many, if any injuries, and no deaths. Forces of nature are fascinating as hell just to marvel at the raw power, but the appreciation lessens quite a bit when human life becomes at stake.
