Additionally, AA just asked all their airplanes to monitor 129.05. They want to bring all their airplanes in for a hail inspection and will coordinate over that frequency (if you have a local scanner).

There was also a report of a tornado that just missed the big airport, it is said to have come down near Coppel and was headed to the NE.
I remember the big storm back in 1995 that hit DFW. We had dented and broken airplanes lined up for weeks to get into the AA or DL hangers for repairs. IIRC in that storm, over 100 aircraft ranging from Saab-340s and E-110s to MD-11s and B-747s damaged.
