Dallas Texas Tornado Whips Semi Trailers Like Garbage

AN extremely dangerous" storm producing tornadoes was barreling through the Dallas-Fort Worth area today, causing heavy damage.

"The National Weather Service (NWS) issued warnings for parts of Collin, Dallas and Denton Counties to be in effect until 3pm local time, telling residents to take cover from the "extremely dangerous" situation.

As the storm system is expected to move northeast, parts of Hunt, Delta and Hopkins Counties were under a tornado warning until 3.30pm, the NWS said.

At least four tornadoes may have already touched down in the region. The extent of the damage was not immediately clear but initial reports indicated several homes were impacted in Arlington, Cleburne and Lancaster.

Pictures from those cities posted by CBS's affiliate in Dallas showed downed trees, semi-trailers tossed on their side and homes with torn-off roofs and smashed windows.

KDFW-TV reported there were considerable reports of damage from Johnson County and southern Tarrant County near Interstate 20.

Aerial footage from WFAA-TV showed truck trailers being sucked into the storm's dark clouds.
