Several tornadoes touched down in the area today starting at about 12:45 PM. The worst hit area was in Lancaster about two miles from our house. About 300 homes were lost. The other two areas affected were Arlington and Forney. I took a few pictures of the storm as it passed to the west and then to the north of us. The other pictures are of some of the damage, and were taken with my camera from the TV screen, so I apologize for the quality. The pictures are here.
Update: added more pictures from the TV, and a few I took on my way to get a hamburger from Sonic.
