In the meantime, take cover, marvel at Mother Nature's latest moves in the videos below, and be on the look out for a Justin Terveen-shaped man flying past your office window, click-click-clicking away.

Also, if you want to stay up to date, KXT is covering it blow by blow, including on-the-ground updates from listeners. Most of the reports are pretty cool, but every once in a while someone randomly starts singing "Ants Marching."

Update, 3:30 p.m.: More videos below.

Update, 3:37 p.m.: Flights at DFW have been grounded, per Rueters Africa, and Love Field's terminal has been evacuated, according to every single person on Twitter.

This is video from CNN, of trailers being trashed by a tornado.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
