Tornadoes in Dallas

| No Comments

Tornadoes and storms wreaked havoc Tuesday throughout the Dallas area.

According to the Red Cross, 650 homes were damaged and no fatalities were reported as of late Tuesday, the Huffington Post said.

National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Bishop told the Huffington Post that although April is typically the worst month throughout the tornado season, but after Tuesday's storms Bishop said, "We're on pace to be above normal."

The Lancaster police in suburban Dallas said 10 people had been hurt- two of whom were residents of a nursing home and were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, the Associated Press said.

Hundreds of flights were canceled at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and nearly 14,000 homes and businesses had lost electricity from Tuesday until early Wednesday. 

Meteorologists said the storms occurred from a slow-moving storm system that centered over northern New Mexico, the Huffington Post said.
