This was about 3 hrs ago.. Storm Chaser near El Reno, OK captures a Large Tornado heading towards Piedmont earlier. Coverage was live on KFOR-TV.

Saw 1 very clear funnel cloud near our home in far north Ft Worth and several very small funnels dropping from the clouds for a few seconds before disappearing back into the clouds above them. Very chilling scene and can't imagine what its like to see one on the ground coming towards you.

Core of the 68dbz just SouthEast of Dallas few minutes ago. 68dbz. Max was 76 at this time but the core wasn't as thick of course. Usually in a severe thunderstorm there is a core this size of 45-50dbz. This is a massive hail core, possible tornado cell and intense lightning, wind and rain.

I'm afraid many people do take it too lightly and even complain because some stupid TV show was interrupted due to the weathermen cutting in. I just don't get it and I've lived 32 years in Tornado Alley.

The Joplin tornado is the 4th EF5 tornado this year. The record in one year is 6, lets hope we do not break that record.

Thanks for the stat. Yes, they upgraded the Joplin Tornado to an EF5 with winds OVER 200mph.

Lets wait until they assess the Piedmont Tornado last night..that could be an EF4.. I doubt a 5. Sick

Default Tornado rips truck, Throws Car

Watch this Tornado rip a truck and throw a car in the air. All those movies we saw are becoming a reality. One must wonder if they did it to prep us.
