Dallas photographer Danny Fulgencio rolled out early this morning to capture images from the aftermath of the tornado in Forney.
"I started shooting at around 7 a.m., just after the curfew lifted," he tells Unfair Park. "These shots document the swath of destruction from yesterday's tornado which struck the Diamond Creek subdivision. The damage was extensive. It's a miracle no one was killed.
"There were few people out while I was there ... strangely still, almost calm, even in spite of the constant bleating of home alarms and the helicopter hovering overhead.
"I hope the shots capture the disaster as seen under the dawn's early light."
They do. For more of Fulgencio's images from Forney, check out the Observer's slideshow.
