On Tuesday, April 3, 2012, a major tornado ripped across parts of southeastern Dallas, Texas. As the twister plowed through the area, several major media outlets, including The Weather Channel and CNN, went live, and the National Weather Service issued a Tornado Emergency. The images captured on video were chilling: As the tornado passed through a shipping yard in Lancaster (in Dallas County), it picked up semi trucks and tossed them hundreds of feet into the air like toys. A debris field was clearly visible on video.
Fortunately, once the storm moved past I-20, the tornado dissipated, but sadly, the damage left in it's wake was tremendous.The storm system that produced this massive tornado also produced multiple super cell storms in other areas in and around Dallas -- each had the potential for tornadoes.
