Widespread reports of severely damaged or destroyed houses and commercial buildings (shopping centers) in the north Dallas area, from Harry Hines to Central Expwy, along a path from roughly Walnut Hill Lane to LBJ Fwy (I-635)

Another tornado confirmed northern Ellis County, near Dallas County line

Channels 4, 8, & 11 running solid weather reports on the storms. Last I looked, Ch 5 (NBC) was still in the Cowboy game

Large areas of collapsed houses in the 'Preston Hollow' area. Damage path roughly along and north of Walnut Hill Lane, up to LBJ Fwy. and east to about US 75.

The tornadic storms are now near Greenville & Terrell.

Another line of storms forming up about 100 miles west.

I finally got a chance to listen more than a few minutes today (something about work? paycheck? hmpf!). They're actually quite busy on both channels.
