TX Tornadoes Toss Semi-Trucks Like Toys | Footage and Photos

Incredible footage of semi-trailer trucks literally sucked up in the air and tossed around as though they are match-box toys. Footage from the tornadoes which struck Dallas-Ft Worth on Tuesday. Heavy damage, yet no casualties. Very lucky.

If you have not seen this footage, it is amazing. I am from tornado alley, and my jaw still drops when I watch this. Found a nice HD upload from the CNN coverage, so you can really see nature at work here.

  1. Amazing, seeing those semis being tossed around like tiddly-winks. And the news choppers were in the sky? They must be on crack!

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get three e-mails with the same comment. Is
    there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
