The tornado carved a path of destruction while moving north through the state.

A code black was issued at Parkland Hospital in the Dallas, ordering all patients to be kept a safe distance from the windows.

A “tornado emergency” was declared by the National Weather Service for the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas on Tuesday. The weather service said “considerable damage” also was reported near Cleburne, south of Fort Worth, and Lancaster, south of Dallas.

Damage was reported at Six Flags amusement park in Arlington, Texas.
All flights are grounded at Dallas Fort Worth Airport.

There was damage at Interstate 20 and Cooper in Arlington, where vehicles on the roadway were flattened.

CNN‘s Chad Myers said the worst is yet to come, “Both storms right now are getting bigger. They both have been rotating, and they both have significant possibilities of damage on the ground heading into DFW.” reported that the severe storm behind the tornadoes is expected to move across the Southern Plains throughout Tuesday afternoon and evening.

The advisory states the storms could carry golf-ball-size hail, winds gusting to 60 mph and locally heavy rainfall. The main threat will be from noon to 6 p.m.  The area facing the severest threat is along and east of U.S. 281 from San Antonio to Burnet, Texas.

Senior meteorologist for Henry Margusity, said, “There were two storms producing tornados as of Tuesday afternoon. While tornados at this time of year are not unusual, it was unusual to have two major metropolitan areas being hit at the same time.” He added, “I’ve never seen that happen in my life.”

No injuries have been reported.

  1. Lloyd the Baptist warned Conservatives, the wrath of GOD is upon you…

    NEWS ALERT: Breitbart was scared to death and tornados hit Red States.

    I bring a message from Almighty JEHOVAH GOD, JESUS and the HOLY SPIRIT. Repent, the time is at hand and those who continue supporting evil deeds… WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! Christians have been given SIGNS and you have been WARNED!

    The time is NOW, the star are aligned, the PEOPLE are angry and the Mayan calendar predicted it… Republican World is coming to an end in 2012, and thank GOD, none too soon! HAVE YOU NOTICED THE LOSS OF FREEDOM?

    In the year of our LORD 2000, The GOP took on the seal of the upside down pentagram, better known as the sign of Satan. RECOGNIZE what the Republican Party has become since. The Bush Family, the Cheney’s, Rumsfeld, Rove, Wolfowitz, etc must be held accountable for their evil acts. Conservatives must offer them up or ALL Americans will be prosecuted.

    Remember THIS; “Blessed are the Peacemakers, they shall be called the children of GOD” Matthew 5:9. Your tax dollars have supported great evil in the eyes of the Lord. REPENT!

    No matter what lies/deceit Pat Robertson or any other right-wing Christian Pastor preaches… War Profiteers and JESUS are NOT on the same side. No matter what the AM radio Limbaughs or FOX news are propagating, the Republican Party is NOT working for the majority of the American PEOPLE. In case Conservative minds are so dulled they missed the SIGNS!

    Noticed the fires, winds, storms, floods, drought, earthquakes and environmental disasters are only devastating Red states and Republican county/city strongholds…?

    How about that mysterious illness Glenn Beck passed on during his 2010 DC rally? It’s spread like the wildfires destroying TX, AZ and NM?

    Do you have a headache/sore throat, Mr & Mrs Conservative? On painkillers? One of the messengers, I, Lloyd the Baptist, predicted years ago. GOD DOESN’T WANT CONSERVATIVES TO VOTE! If you do vote for the evil Republicans in 2012, then you shall be in hell before the New Year. So it is written so shaLL it be done…

    (NOTE: See post “A Christmas Message…” December 20, 2009 on

    More Conservative spokesperson deaths will occur before ALL are judged in 2012. By December 27, all the Limbaugh$ will be gone…
    Lloyd the Baptist
