On Tuesday, April 3rd a tremendous twister hit regions of Texas. Houses smushing like cake, cars flying like feathers, and Plywood flying at deadly speeds. No suprise there, since wind speeds were up to 165 mph in Forney. Forney was one of the towns hit hardest by Tuesday’s twisters and they are cleaning up along with Lancaster and other areas. About 650 homes were damaged in Tuesday’s Texas tornado outbreak. Thank goodness nobody died, though dozens were injured.
“If you really think about it, the fact that everybody who woke up in Forney yesterday is alive today in Forney, that’s a real blessing,” Mayor Darren Rozell said. Anything that can throw a tractor, is no j0ke.
But the tornados weren’t consistent, they jumped from place to place, passing many heavily populated areas overhead and perhaps limiting what could have been a more damaging, deadly storm. Most of Dallas was spared by the full wrath of the storms. Thankfully, most of the tornado was off the ground and could have been way more devastating. Over 1,000 plane flights were canceled in just two days at one airport, and over 110 planes were damaged by hail.
