Geez, not another airport. It wasn’t a month ago that STL was hit.

I guess Obama will send a postcard from Stonehedge saying he’s with them.

Heard the tornado reported on WBAP which was heading SE through Las Colinas (just west of me) on its way to Dallas.

Had golfball sized hail here, just a half hour ago.

I’m in Irving too, but didn’t get that major wind blast. Got some golfball sized hail, though.

Prayers for all. What is with all the tornadoes? I know these of recent areas in TX/OK tonight are prone but not usually killer twisters.Look how many have touched down just in the month of April.

Had one go just a little south of us here in Keller (North Fort Worth) a few minutes ago. Had a bunch of golf ball and larger-size hail batter my roof and car - fortunately not too bad on the car. The roof may be another matter.

I'm in Irving (southeast of Grapevine). There was some twister activity in your daughter's area, but there are no reports of serious damage or loss of life that I've heard. Monitoring local radio right now.

That area may have lost some cell towers.

There’s a rather unique set of conditions right now. The jet stream, cooler than normal conditions in the upper U.S. and Canada, and warmer than normal conditions from down south and over the Gulf.

The jet stream is hitting the Rockies just right, flowing over them and dropping down lower than normal. That and the two bodies of air that have wider than normal variation, plus the fact the front moving through as basically stalled, is keeping the mid-west area in the cross hairs.

Daytime sunlight heating, isn’t helping at all.

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport has removed passengers from jets and is sheltering them inside the terminal. The entire upper deck at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington has been evacuated.

BTW, they have better tracking methods today than they have ever had. Yes they are counting more tornadoes of various sizes, but then they have a massive number of people out there tracking these days too.

New resources, more people tracking, the ability to see particulate matter in the air, not as many develop and slip under the attention of the weather service these days.

Who knows what we would have seen in past decades, if we had these new tools and this number of chasers.

Did you see them talk about the particulate matter that rose over Joplin to 18,000 feet? Wow. Amazing that it happened, and amazing that they can track it.

In May 1957 a tornado hit Love Field and Backman lake in Dallas and skipped over my house. I was 9 years old. I can still close my eyes and see that long twisting snake.

Looks like it's all over in FW now. From what I saw, it looks like most of the bad stuff went north of FW into the Bedford area and then on through DFW and Love Field. Only one rotation left and it's east of Dallas now on into Rockwall.

Howdy. Went and checked outside for damage after the hail passed us. Got a few small dings on the truck, but the roof looks ok.

It may not be over yet. We've got our tornado set-up in the hallway, and shoes on all the kids. Batteries in the flashlights, and the emergency radio at the ready.

How are things at your place?
