She has been updating on FB, that the storms have moved away from her and she is now safe. I think she had some scary moments. I saw that on the news too while at the gym. The tornado on the ground was very scary!
See! This is why you need facebook.
Yes, there have been at least two confirmed tornadoes that I know of, both relatively close to us. One touched down right between my sisters' houses in south Arlington, about 25 miles or so from my house. Yikes, as I'm typing this they may be reporting more on the ground.
I'm on the east side of the metroplex and we are in the clear now. I believe most of my friends and family are in the clear as well, as the storms are all west of us. Hopefully that is the last of it.
I also meant to say thank you for checking. I was scared, not only for my Jordan and I but for everyone I know in this area. The one that touched down in Dallas was lifting 18 wheeler trailers up into the air like they were made of paper. If I see video online then I will see if I can post it here.
How scary! I'm so glad you are safe. I saw a video on weather.com that was pretty scary!!

This is where my 4 year old niece goes to MDO. Their safe room had the ceiling caving in with water and it flooded. Thankfully, all the children and adults were okay. A tornado was confirmed in this area which is also right next to both my sisters' houses as well as a close family friend (the fourth sister as I call her). The tornado was within miles of all of their homes and may have hit this church.
I wish I could find video of of the truck trailers flying 100's of feet into the air. Here are pictures. This was in Dallas, east of my home and my family. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...8320WD20120403
Scary!!! I am glad that you and your family are all ok! I have never seen one in real life but I imagine it would be terrifying!
And yes....I know, I am lame for not having a Facebook! HA!
You hear this guy say he is at 287 and Sublett. That is where I exit to get to my middle sister's house. This is EERILY close to them. The tornado must have barely missed their home.
Oh my goodness, that is so scary. I'm so glad you and your family are all okay. I hope you're in the clear now.
