Dallas-area tornadoes leave trail of damage (photos, video)

Two “large and extremely dangerous” tornadoes ripped through the Dallas region on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

The twisters caused damage within the southern limits of the city, tossed trucks in the air, and left tractors scattered across the highway, the AP reports. “Considerable damage” was also reported near Cleburne, a city south of Fort Worth, and Lancaster, a city south of Dallas, according to the service. Flights from Dallas-Fort Worth Airport were delayed.
