Tornadoes tear through Dallas-Forth Worth area

(CNN) — Separate tornadoes touched down near the Dallas-Forth Worth area Tuesday afternoon, tossing tractor trailers like toys and causing widespread damage to homes and other structures.

One tornado was spotted on the ground five miles east of downtown Dallas, the National Weather Service said. All flights at Dallas-Fort Worth airport were grounded and passengers and airport employees were moved into shelters as the storm system spawned multiple funnel clouds. Flights at Dallas Love Field airport were also grounded.
