So, of course, everyone was a little on edge and keeping a close eye on the weather yesterday once tornado watches were issued across the state. And sure enough, multiple tornadoes touched down in Texas.

The Associated Press is reporting that 310,000 people were without power across the state due to the storms as of last night. The storms also caused more than 400 flight cancellations at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and Dallas Love Field.

The good news is that as of this posting, only minor injuries were reported in the wake of the storms. Y’all keep an eye on the sky and stay safe out there. It’s already looking to be a wild tornado season.
