A tornado plowed through a miles-long swath of Dallas late Sunday — knocking out power for about 65,000 people and wrecking buildings in its wake.
The storm swirled through northwest Dallas around 9 p.m., the city confirmed in a statement.
Video posted by meteorologist Dakota Smith with the National Center for Atmospheric Research shows the twister swirling through the black sky, lit up by flashes of lightning.
No deaths or serious injuries were reported by early Monday, according to the city.
But about 65,000 people experienced “service interruptions” as a result of the storm, the city said.
Video retweeted by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott shows the storm sending debris flying around a porch.
“We are sending prayers,” the governor wrote. “We are also sending the Texas Division of Emergency Management to provide assistance. Stay safe Texans.”
A devastating photo shows a local church left in shambles after the storm battered the building.
“Many members are going inside to salvage, despite it being unsafe,” Dallas Morning News reporter Sam Blum tweeted. “Other members out here just sobbing.”
One local fire station was also left battered by the storm.
“Thankfully no injuries to any of the firefighters inside,” the department tweeted, along with photos of the damage.
Ramps at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport were closed as a safety measure, and departures were delayed until at least 12:30 a.m. local time.
Multiple schools in the Dallas Independent School District were closed Monday, the Morning News reported.
