    Im in north dallas and those sirens was sounding off for a long time. The rain was coming down so hard and the wind was blowing hard. My kids and I just got some pillows and got in the hallway and covered our heads. We was so scared.

    We watched from the windows of our office building downtown. It evidently started near Mockingbird, west of Stemmons Freeway, and moved along Mockingbird Lane damaging what apparently are light industrial buildings as it moved east, then died out before it reached Love Field. I wouldn't call the neighborhood "very populated" as it's mostly commercial and this was after 5 pm when a lot of those types of businesses close.

    it hit near the 600 block of Mockingbird, according to a local news source. I heard the same report on my scanner from DPD. so far there is only one reported injury. there is also a school south of that area that was damaged.

    I was on the TRE headed to DFW Airport when they stopped the train and made us wait it out by medical market center. We saw it forming! Then they made the train return to Union Station where we were made to change trains and wait for them to clear the track! Intense!!

    The tornado was bouncing around on the northwest side, and touched down at Mockingbird/Irving in a few different places. There is damage to several buildings. It followed along Trinity.

    We got lucky...the touchdown in Dallas was on the west of the highway in an industrial area. On the east side of that area is Children's Medical Center, UTSW and Parkland. We got very very lucky.

    The tornado went through the southern part of the city and crossed the Trinity River into the Trinity industrial area. Damage to some buildings before it moved north near Love Field Airport and then dissipated.

    They're first to post with specifics, they're first to post without details, they're first to post nothing!
