Those of us in Dallas are currently watching live on TV as a tornado on the ground has crossed west of downtown Dallas and is not crossing near Motor Street/ Regal Row and headed toward Harry Hines near DAL.
The weather and camera shots on WFAA are such that we can see the rotation and debris flying into the air.
I assume DAL is in a ground stop right now - but should be safe.

The tornado sirens have gone off up here in Frisco, due to a storm that had radar indicated rotation but never dropped a tornado like the Dallas and Kaufman/Rockwall storms.
As of about 13 minutes ago, the news stations are reporting serious damage to a paint store near Inwood and the Trinity River. Seeing the shot of the Trinity River was soo breathtaking because it's such a monster river after all the rain.

They had one in Seagoville, one near Rockwall, and the one that touched down in Oak Cliff, headed through part of West Dallas, and dissipated less than 1 mile from DAL, right at Mockingbird and I-35. We had the sirens going off here at White Rock Lake for about 40 minutes. Being the curious bunch we are, my neighbors and I all went outside to look up at the sky.
We've received over 6 inches of rain here, but this is the closest I remember a tornado coming to my part of Dallas County since December 2004. As Danny Glover might say, "I'm getting too old for this tornado dodging s***."
Also, down in San Marcos, between Austin and San Antonio, a cell dumped 6.5" of rain in 90 minutes.
We remain under a tornado watch until 1 am, but the latest radar showed the only storms headed this direction down near Meridian, Texas, which is about 90 miles away -- just west of Waco.

It's all part of what's left of Hurricane Hermine. It's found it's way into Oklahoma City and counties in the Southern Part of Oklahoma have had Tornado warnings issued. Lots of rain and flooding with this one as well. The outer bands started moving in Monday, and it's just gray as ever outside now. Looking forward to a fun filled few days of weather! (I have to admit, the cool 70 degrees is very nice!)

Had to hold DAL arrivals for about an hour while the tower was evacuated. Entrail restrictions to DFW all day, as well as yesterday. Nobody wants to fly where they're pointed. General chaos and confusion. Let's all be careful, there's a hurricane out there.
