Tractor trailers are seen thrown around through the skies of the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

A severe weather outbreak has taken place over parts of Texas today with numerous tornadoes reported along with extremely large hail. The set up for the region was very indicative having the chance for tornadoes as there was plenty of moisture and shear and enough instability with an outflow boundary lurking around the area

The Storm Prediction Center first put out a Severe Thunderstorm Watch this morning but upgraded it to a Tornado Watch about 30 minutes before the Tornado Warnings were issued. Pictures and videos have been streaming in throughout the day of the tornadoes but luckily so far I haven't heard of any reports of deaths.

Check out this crazy raw video from out of Dallas/Fort Worth. The images are crazy around 1:30-2:00 as you can clearly see tractor trailers being tossed around over a shipping yard.


Here are more videos of Tuesday's tornadoes from across the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Another amazing picture from Twitter can be found here. Even Texas Rangers baseball player Mike Napoli caught video of what appeared to be a funnel cloud crossing over the Rangers Stadium.

How about a picture of a tree upside down lying up against a building? That can be found here.
