    Found another site giving updates:

    Severe Weather Updates CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

    Sounds like DFW was right in the path of one of the storms, not sure how it came out of it.

    Tornadoes tear through Dallas-Fort Worth area - CNN.com

    Video of the semi trailers being thrown around.

    Luckily, my boss hadn't left town yet.

    Re: 'Tremendous damage' as tornadoes touch down south of Dallas

    Significant damage in the SW Arlington/Kennedale area. As of now, Arlington Fire reports only minor injuries.

    So far no serious injury reports from Lancaster (where the semi trailers were getting whipped into the air), other than that a medical triage center has been set up. There is significant damage there however, and several residential areas were hit. That area was getting pummeled by heavy rain/hail which has just cleared out, so the rescue efforts are getting underway again.

    The smaller town of Forney NE of Dallas was reportedly just hit, including the school, but the students had already been sent home.

    The tornado passed through about 2 miles west of my place, but it might have lifted as it was going by, and then set down again.
