The pilot or newswoman in the video is caught off guard as she watches multiple 18 wheelers being thrown around in the air like small toys…and in shock she says, “This Is Something I’ve Never Seen Before”. Pretty shocking footage. This affected multiple parts of the DFW Metroplex.
One tornado hit the Flying J Truck Plaza in Dallas, tossing two trucks, said driver Michael Glennon, who caught the destruction on his video camera.
“The second trailer is ripped to pieces and thrown 50 to 100 feet into the air,” Reuters quoted him as saying.
“This is a serious situation,” the NBC affiliate reported over the air at the height of the storms, as meteorologists showed live footage of “debris balls” in Dallas, Ellis, Johnson and Tarrant counties, where officials were trying to get a tally of injuries and damage.
Live video showed a huge funnel cloud moving through a populated area as flashes of exploding power lines lit the sky. Vehicles were thrown across a major highway.
Large trucks were seen being flung through the air. “There’s lots of 18-wheelers,” said one NBC 5 reporter near Arlington. “I’ve never seen this before.”
