Brand new video right now check out these devastating twisters as a -- -- tore through yesterday northern Texas take elements that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah.
It is it's gone.
So this video shows what mr.
Stiller neighborhood this is the town of Forney and taxes.
Now -- seeing the aftermath from that storm this video also to stand as you can see dozens of homes now completely level.
Residents there comparing it to a freight train ripping through their neighbor.
I saw the clouds Berlin and ran in Denton and knows how much of the door and -- again was -- I'm just glad to be here him.
-- totaled 650 homes reportedly sustained significant damage incredibly.
Nobody was killed in -- starts.
For the very latest we have -- once again Rick Reichmuth to the scene.
Of that devastation he's live right now in Arlington Texas and and Rick you that you pointed out earlier.
Given the fact that there -- six million people who live in that area and there are so many -- -- tornadoes it was a very random event.
Yet really was and an event that we didn't expect to see big tornadoes yesterday.
And then it did end up happening and it -- right a very populated area and then.
No fatalities which -- is so amazing the great news is that the warning systems were in place.
All the local news stations were certainly covering this wall the wall them and we saw that on the local fox affiliate.
Having two tornadoes.
On the ground at the same time.
In the Dallas Fort Worth area is certainly going to be something that -- this city has never seen before.
And then they have the damage like this -- another really wide tornado.
Yeah I can show you these three houses in a -- that sustained significant damage at one house with the roof torn off.
This one a big chunk of the roof torn off and the garage.
As being completely collapse the of the wall of that.
Is opened up as well and then -- second floor on the next building.
-- -- Is gone all she can see the trees destroyed.
But you -- a couple more houses here and you can see everything fine you notice these are very solidly constructed homes so that certainly.
Helps matters if you're talking about people not sustaining as many injuries and no fatalities that's good news.
But -- also when you think about how strong these homes are built and seeing this kind of damage certainly a strong tornado cut through here and as you said Steve.
Twelve tornadoes just here in the Dallas Fort Worth area eighteen total.
In the northern part of Texas and all on a -- -- we didn't think we would see -- we thought we'd see more hail yesterday than tornadoes.
-- will certainly be a big story for us a 110.
Planes in the Dallas Fort Worth airport sustained damage from hail.
They are still now having to go through and inspect all of those planes because of that over 420 flights today have already been canceled in the Dallas Fort Worth airport.
Let me just going to be big -- across the nation's airports this a very big job for so -- different airlines needed.
-- and Rick -- asked -- question earlier we saw the video.
From a helicopter.
Of those semi -- being tossed around like toys and here's some of the video right here this was taken by helicopter one of the news helicopters in Dallas.
How far out yet if you're in a helicopter during eternity got to be worried how far away from that scene was a chopper any idea.
You know what it's hard to tell because these have such -- zoom -- is now so I I'm sure they were in in a safe distance.
Well one thing I notice it's interesting -- semis.
They look very small when you see him on that video but the -- are about fifty feet long and you see how high up in the year they are.
I would say they -- probably about a 12250.
Feet in the air.
And Steve each one of those weighs about 161000.
Pounds without anything in the -- It's -- in a movie you wouldn't believe it but it we saw it live on TV and it was real all right Rick Reichmuth reporting live from the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex thank you.
