MSNBC has good coverage. http://video.msnbc.msn.com/msnbc.com/46942291/?ocid=twitter#46942291

Reported 1 headed to DFW airport.

They have a guy on the phone who's play-by-playing a tornado touching down.

The schools have a "really good handle" on their kids... Is this a catholic school they're talking about?

WhoIsWillo: Residents have been urged to take shelter in Cowboys Stadium, were there is no chance of a touchdown.

Still looks pretty dark for mid-afternoon.

Just got an update that said "Tornado in vicinity of Arlington Texas on a track towards DFW airport."

OH CRAP, IT'S GONNA CATCH A FLIGHT TO DC!

I love the traffic choppers flying around broadcasting footage back to the station. What are the chances one of them gets knocked down, and the video goes viral in seconds?

Leave it to the douchebags to bring politics into a weather thread.

Snapper Carr: XKCD is oddly prophetic (new window) on this one.


Umwelt, wasn't he chief of naval operations back in the early 1970s?

Yeah, that's the guy, Admiral Zelmo Umwelt.

Yeah. All our lights are on sensors so you might think it was taken at night.

Not much rain here, but I imagine that will change.

Seriously. What bastards.

It's heading directly for the airport!!!!!
 
2012-04-03 03:07:01 PM
Pfft, that Tornado will never get through the TSA checkpoint.

C'mon, have a heart. You know how many generations of Texas schoolchildren will be going without books and class space for that stadium?

If it is any consolation, it will likely have a layover in Atlanta.

Wow. First greenlight AND it's actually relevant to my major.

/Stay safe, Dallas Farkers
 
2012-04-03 03:07:23 PM
Uh-oh ... sirens going off somewhere pretty close. Maybe east of here, hard to tell ... (I'm in Irving, east of here would we west Dallas.
 
2012-04-03 03:07:27 PM
There's a warning issued for Denton.

Someone tell Brad and Janet to get out of there.

SHUT. DOWN. EVERYTHING.

Anyone else read that as "large tomato?"

/everything's bigger in Texas...
 
2012-04-03 03:08:47 PM

probesport: dallylamma: probesport: The siren's were blowing, clouds spat rain And as the thing came through, I swear, it sounded like a train

They say that missing trucker ended up in Kansas...or maybe it was Oz.

I knew there had to be someone. Amazing band, even better live.


This is probably my favourite song of theirs. Never seen them live, had tickets once but the show got called off for one reason or another.

Kids, the tornado was an act of God.

So open your Bibles to Genesis 1 and get this science class underway.

Dammit

Looking at the damage to the houses, there are SUVs that are shoved into fences, houses with roofs torn off, and RV completely destroyed, and a Subaru Outback sitting untouched in a driveway.

This is nothing but a commercial!
 
2012-04-03 03:09:45 PM
Just want to let everyone know I am ok. Repeat, OK.

You think they built that stadium with the school budget? Psh, as if our school budget was that big.

I pay an additional .5% on my taxes. I consider it to be worth it considering what used to be in that space.

Getting thunder here and it's causing the dogs to bark.

Don't you panic.

By the light of the night. It'll all seem alright.

Controversial stance there, Barack.

I'm right in the middle of it all in North Arlington. My house and my son's school are at 30 and Cooper.

Anyone seen this? A live wind map of the U.S.

Link (new window)

This story kind of calls into question its accuracy; DFW looks like having a very boring wind pattern (click to zoom into the map)
 
2012-04-03 03:13:41 PM
Oooooh, sirens!!!
 
2012-04-03 03:13:46 PM
And, we got sirens in Murphy!
