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.

Holy God, my son lives in Ft. Worth and we have been trying to get in touch with him with no luck. PLEASE FOLKS PRAY for ALL THE FOLKS in the storm’s path. GOD BE WITH THEM!

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 neighbor...staying safe?

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?

All of that still leaves my dumb question. Why don’t southern states homes have basements?

It looks like the rotational hook is fading over Arlington.

I remember something similar, but am not clear on the year. There were a few tornadoes on a day named “Disaster Dallas”. My brothers and I stood in the front yard with my mother and all the neighbors and watched those things twist across the sky. As things got worse my mom shoved us under the pier and beam foundation. To this day it’s a very vivid memory especially because I could tell my mom was terrified and I definitely didn’t want to go under the house with the spiders! Hope all of you stay safe tonight.
