Tornadoes cause massive damage across Dallas-Fort WorthBy The Dallas Local | Local Dallas
By Jason Sickles, Yahoo! Dallas EditorMassive twin twisters have touched down near Dallas and Fort Worth this afternoon, crushing homes and sending thousands of North Texans scrambling to take cover.
Reports of injuries were not immediately known, but the National Weather Service declared the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area to be under a "tornado emergency." Warnings for most counties are still active.
Sirens were going off in downtown Dallas and Fort Worth. Schools across the area were huddling children in hallways. Passengers at DFW International Airport were being rushed to safe areas at 1:50 p.m. CT.
"This is as serious of a tornado we've seen in years," said CBS 11 meteorologist Larry Mowry.
Television news helicopters broadcast images of the twisters.
Spotters on the ground estimated the tornadoes to be 1/2-mile wide. The first tornado, first spotted about 20 miles south of Fort Worth, was believed to be on the ground for 30 minutes.
That twister was captured on video near Arlington. KXAS (NBC 5) published the raw video.
Storm spotters were reporting widespread major damage of homes and other buildings in communities south of Fort Worth.
"Oh man," a spotter surveying damage told CBS 11. "People are running frantically trying to see if people are ok."
