The Margin: ‘We’re in a tornado!’ These terrifying videos show a twister tearing through Dallas overnight


A powerful tornado touched down in Dallas on Sunday night, leaving tens of thousands without power as it cut a 17-mile swath of destruction.

The violent twister first struck by Love Airfield Airport and began moving east at 9 p.m. Three people were hospitalized, and almost 140,000 customers lost electricity as of 4 a.m. Monday, with the worst damage being reported in northwest Dallas and Richardson. As the storm system moved north, one person died in Arkansas after a tree fell on a home.
