We have had everything in Texas and Oklahoma the past few days. Lines of thunderstorms. Along with super cells popping up and growing huge in just an hour or two.

Tell me about it! We live in west Fort Worth. Terrible what happened just south of here in Granbury. That was a sleepless night. Saying stuff could blow up here again Tuesday.

Thanks! I am going to watch. One thing that usually makes me feel better for folks up there is that most have shelters at least.

Prayer up!

Ripped from weatherunderground:

The tornado just moving off Lake Thunderbird is a rare situation... the circulation is close enough to the radar that radar is able to sample some of the sub-cloud parts of the storm, with the 0.5deg tilt beam centerline at ~250ft.
The tornado signature (TS, not TVS) is roughly 0.25-0.50mi peak-to-peak.

I saw police trying to stop people on one highway and a few cars just blew right past the blue flashers! Probably crazy storm chasers. I think Reed Timmer is driving right into it now.

The good news is everybody was warned and had a plan in their minds to be somewhere ~safe. We won’t see fatalities and injuries like we did with Granbury. Mass destruction but everything will be rebuilt, shiny and new.

Unfortunately, no. Fatality already reported and numerous vehicles were overturned at the I-40 and 177 intersection.
