The Fort Worth Stockyards was hit by high winds ranging from 60-75 MPH. The above photographs show only some of the damage as winds ripped sheet metal and rooftops off of buildings.

The power was off in an area from the Fort Worth Stockyards to Lake Worth. This included traffic signals.

As we drove through the area, we witnessed many people ignoring the fact that they still needed to come to a full stop. This lead to several close calls.

I-30 and Dolphin Road may still be closed during the morning rush hour. #dfw #dfwtraffic

If you have to travel the area of I-30 and Dolphin in the morning, you may want to consider an alternate route. I-30 at Dolphin and the Dolphin Rd bridge may be closed during the morning rush hour. TxDOT is attempting to repair the Dolphin Rd bridge after a fatality accident.

A big rig loaded with plastics and electronics struck a support on the Dolphin Rd bridge traveling between 60 – 70 MPH. The cab of the rig was destroyed and the driver died on impact.

HOV lane and one lane of I-30 is getting through the scene. It is going to be slow going.

The closer is expected to last several days as repairs to the Dolphin RD bridge continue.
