A series of tornados touched down in Dallas Sunday night, one gliding along the ground for an estimated 14 to 16 miles. And much of that area has at least 50% destruction probability, new data from CoreLogic shows.
The sirens wailed across Dallas as a tornado was confirmed to have touched down. CoreLogic Weather Verification Services also confirmed that hail up to 2.5 inches accompanied the storm in North Dallas and up to 1.5 inches south of Dallas.
The pictures below show the debris that cluttered the streets and even a city bus turned over by the storm. But that was even mild in terms of the destruction Sunday’s tornado left.
CoreLogic meteorologists on the insurance and spatial team showed the area of Dallas the tornado touched down. In the chart below, the lighter magenta shows areas on the path where there is 50% damage probability, the darker magenta represents 70% and the green represents 90%.
The National Weather Service confirmed the tornadoes include an EF-3, the one shown above which hit Dallas, and EF-1 which touched down in Rowlett and an EF-0 which hit Wills Point.
Reports show at least six people have been hospitalized, but there have been no major injuries or deaths reported.
Many residents are now displaced, and about 130,000 are without power across North Texas, according to Oncor.
