Dozens of tornados EVERYWHERE, 3-tornadoes here (dfw area) and basball sized hail during lunch time. I just missed it sitting under the gas pumps at Racetrack for 1hr-1/2. My video to come later, the towers are two busy to download right now. Jet

Whoa! Good call, Jet. Glad you avoided an insurance claim, or worse.

Came through about 1 1/2 miles from our house but luckily no damage here. I actually saw 2 different tornadoes as I headed home to check everything out.

Tornadoes are some scrary stuff. Glad to hear so far most have come out ok. You can always replace material thngs but life is totally different. We had a F4 hit a couple a miles up the road last year, which is unheard of for NC, and it was on the ground for 60 miles. It did some major destruction in the area. We will keep everyone in our thoughts.

Thanks guys. I've never seen it that crazy before. Usually you just have to keep a eye out for one storm but yesterday they were spawning everywhere and all at once. We had one cloud that had 3-tornados coming out of it at one time. That was the 1st time in my life time that I was getting a little worried.

here's my video. Not sure why it came out sideways??

Must have been the high winds blowing the little electrons sideways ;-)
