MSNBC.COM - Thunderstorms and possibly tornadoes could hit much of the southeastern United States Wednesday, The Weather Channel warned, as attempts to clear up from the devastating twisters that hit North Texas Tuesday continued.

About 650 homes were damaged in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, according to a preliminary estimate from The Red Cross, after a swath of violent weather passed through the region like a giant wrecking-ball, leaving thousands of people without power. click here to read more

Among the hardest cities hit was the southern Dallas suburb of Lancaster, where Mayor Marcus Knight said 300 structures were damaged and 10 people were injured. 

Tornadoes were seen on video tossing semi-trailers into the air with ease.

MSNBC.COM - At least two tornadoes touched down in areas south of Dallas on Tuesday, causing widespread damage. The National Weather Service described them as "large and extremely dangerous." With the storms still moving northeast through the region, many properties were damaged or destroyed and the Dallas Fort-Worth International Airport was hit by large hail, NBCDFW.com reported.

Dallas flights were shut down and travelers were taken to shelters as the storms passed. American Airlines canceled nearly all its remaining flights Tuesday due to potential hail damage to aircraft.

One tornado hit the Flying J Truck Plaza in Dallas, tossing two trucks, said driver Michael Glennon, who caught the destruction on his video camera.

"The second trailer is ripped to pieces and thrown 50 to 100 feet into the air," Reuters quoted him as saying.

"This is a serious situation," the NBC affiliate reported over the air at the height of the storms, as meteorologists showed live footage of "debris balls" in Dallas, Ellis, Johnson and Tarrant counties, where officials were trying to get a tally of injuries and damage.

Live video showed a huge funnel cloud moving through a populated area as flashes of exploding power lines lit the sky. Vehicles were thrown across a major highway. click here to read more
