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.

Storms in Central & East Texas (incl Tarrant County)

March 20, 2012 03:15:31

A huge storm system is making it’s way Northeast across South Central, Northeast, and North Central  Texas.  Heavy winds, heavy rainfall, and Thunderstorms have hit many areas as the storm continues.  Many areas were (and more continue to be) under Tornado Watches.  Some even under Tornado Warnings.

This video was taken in front of my home in South Fort Worth (just 2 miles North of the Crowley border) right around 8 or 9pm in the evening of March 19.   http://youtu.be/wbEQuZd6zE8

The lightening continues, even now in the wee hours, to light up the sky at times and the following Thunderclap can best be described as sounding somewhat like a not too far off freight train (though there must be a good 20+ miles = 1 sec/1 mile rule).  The rain continues to fall steadily as it was doing in the video.  This is causing flooding in many areas.

I urge you to Stay Safe  as this Storm continues.  Watch for local weather alerts for your area.  some options are:

NOAA

Wunderground

FORT WORTH STORMS

Do not think that,  because the storm has let up, its safe out there. There is a lot of pooling water on the roadways and some flooding.

This was only the beginning.  There are still storms coming our way. We are looking at rain till Wednesday maybe Thursday for some. Use your head out there and slow down.
