Mean Hermine Drops Twisters Across Dallas

When tornadoes were dropping from the skies all over Dallas last week, I actually heard someone say "well, those are just small tornadoes so they don't really count". Tell that to the people in Seagoville who lost their homes, or to the businesses off of Mockingbird in Dallas who have no business left. Nope. There's no such thing as a small tornado. Anytime the clouds tilt over and drop to the ground, it's a big deal.

In the North Texas area, Tropical Storm Hermine claimed one life and is responsible for causing damage to nearly 250 homes. In this video, you'll see a small glimpse into the storms power as Red Cross Damage Assessment Teams survey the May Road Apartments in Seagoville.
