A large, damaging tornado caused significant damage in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex one year ago on October 20, 2019, leading to reports of injuries. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/422342235148443/ The tornado touched down around 7pm CDT near Dallas' Love Field, or roughly eight miles northwest of downtown Dallas. It then stayed on the ground for approximately 10 miles, cutting through the heart of Dallas' University Park neighborhood before crossing Interstate 635. The tornado then moved through the northern edge of Dallas County, including the suburbs of Richardson and Garland. A separate tornado warning was issued for the southern side of Dallas County as well, though that storm didn't produce any immediate reports of tornadoes. https://youtu.be/FQHHlqkUsVo https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1186103047648186369 https://twitter.com/BianchiWeather/status/1186127267140780033?s=20 Widespread reports of damage began to circulate on social media, particularly on the north side of the city. Field Correspondent Brandon Clement surveyed the damage at first light. He describes the situation Monday morning: https://youtu.be/dXR-Fnc0Pxk Multiple Dallas ISD schools were closed the next day "due to safety concerns & power outages." Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared a disaster for 16 counties due to the twisters. https://twitter.com/DFWscanner/status/1186119014369648640?s=20
