A series of 6 to 12 destructive tornadoes rated as EF2 (wind speeds over 110 mph) descended upon the Dallas / Fort Worth Texas metro area (AP, 2012). Hundreds of homes and business sustained damage; and sadly some citizens of the area were injured, lost their lives or those they loved. As news of the severe weather became available, the common thread throughout the reports was that The National Weather Service reported at least two separate “large and extremely dangerous” tornadoes south of Dallas and Fort Worth.
According to ABC News on April 3, 2012, “Eight Texas counties face severe weather alerts from the National Weather Service. The counties include Dallas, Kaufman, Rockwall, Delta, Hopkins, Hunt, Bosque and McLennan counties.”
Local volunteers, law enforcement and relief workers are working around the clock to search for survivors and recover lost personal belongings. In a stunning story, a grandmother clung to her 18-month old grandson’s leg for dear life as he was nearly swept away in the wind. Stories of the triumph of the human spirit and peoples’ kindness courage bring much-needed positivity to this bleak event.
