A tornado has damaged parts of Arlington business and apartment complexes according to a Dallas Morning News article published on November 25th. In it they say:
“The tornado came as the line of thunderstorms began moving through Dallas-Fort Worth just before 9 p.m., prompting severe weather watches and tornado warnings. The National Weather Service confirmed early Wednesday that radars showed a tornado had touched down in Arlington. A survey crew will determine how strong the tornado was, where it started and where it ended, Weather Service meteorologist Patricia Sanchez said. Seven buildings sustained serious damage in the storm, according to the Arlington Fire Department. The list included three apartment complexes — Waterdance Apartments, The Mirage Apartments and Garden Park Apartments — two commercial buildings, a church and a house.”
The tornado warning has already been lifted according to a Spectrum News article published on November 24th. In it they say:
“As heavy wind and rain pass through North Texas, it seems the worst is over after a tornado warning was canceled for Tarrant and Dallas Counties. The Arlington Police Department tweeted that it’s assisting the Arlington Fire Department with some damages across the city including malfunctioning signal lights, various roof collapses on some structures and damages to buildings. It’s unclear how bad the damage is and whether or not anyone was injured, and several Snapchat users posted videos of the damage during and after the storm along Pioneer Parkway.”
As more cold fronts are expected to move into the Dallas-Fort Worth area, extra caution is advised after this tornado.
