At least three tornadoes have ripped through the Dallas metro area this afternoon, one passing between Dallas and Fort Worth, bearing down on the Dallas-Fort Worth airport but narrowly missing to the east. The other two tornadoes passed east of Dallas, one touching down near the town of Forney, where there were reports of impacts to the high school. The DFW airport issued a ground stop for all incoming flights and grounded all planes at their airports, and a spokesman said they were sheltering passengers. The airport is now closed while they inspect the planes for hail damage, and can accept no incoming flights for lack of a place to put them.

Residential neighborhoods were completely destroyed in the Arlington tornado, and tractor trailers were tossed like toys. Extensive damage was done to the Green Oaks nursing home and rehab center, which is just east of Lake Arlington. The Arlington tornado was on the ground for approximately 30 minutes. In addition to the tornadoes, trained storm spotters were reporting hail up to three inches in diameter, which is approximately the size of a baseball.

The mayor and city council of Arlington, Texas declared a state of disaster for the city when, just an hour after the tornado had passed through, it was obvious that the area had sustained incredible damage.

Tornado warnings continue to be issued, and the potential for severe thunderstorms with and tornadoes will continue through the evening in eastern Texas, Oklahoma, southern Arkansas, and Louisiana. The convective outlook paints a good picture of the tornado potential for the rest of the evening. If you're in one of these regions, stay alert for tornado watches or warnings that may be issued.

Looking like my portion of Louisiana (Baton Rouge) has the potential for damaging winds and tornadoes tomorrow as the storm system that brought the Dallas tornadoes pivots eastward. Wonder if I'll have another touchdown less than a mile from me?

Thanks, Barefoot. Hubby is in Kansas, gotta deliver 0600 in OKC, then 1100 in Dallas - right in the area where it looks like one of them went through. Have to call in the AM and see if the consignee is still there - or accessible. I imagine parts of Dallas will be a mess and no power.

The Lake Toba eruption plunged the Earth into a volcanic winter, which was claimed to have eradicated 60%[11][12][13][14] of the human population, though humans managed to survive even in the vicinity of the volcano[15] and the theory is disputed.

VEI-7 volcanic events, less colossal but still supermassive, have occurred in the geological past. The only ones in historic times are Tambora, in 1815, Lake Taupo (Hatepe), around 180 CE,[16] and possibly Baekdu Mountain, 969 CE (± 20 years).[17]

* Tambora, Sumbawa Island, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia—1815 (160 km³), the following year, 1816, became known as the "Year Without a Summer"

* Macauley Island, Kermadec Islands, New Zealand—~6,300 years ago (~4,300 BCE) (100 km³)[18][19]
* Kurile Lake, Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia -~8440 years ago (~6440 BCE) Kurile Lake
* Aira Caldera, Kyūshū, Japan—~22,000 years ago (~110 km³)
* Rotoiti Ignimbrite, Taupo Volcanic Zone, North Island, New Zealand—~50,000 years ago (~240 km³)[20]
* Campi Flegrei, Naples, Italy—39,280 ± 110 years ago (500 km³)
* Aso, Kyūshū, Japan—four large explosive eruptions between 300,000 to 80,000 years ago (last one >600 km³)
* Reporoa Caldera, Taupo Volcanic Zone, North Island, New Zealand—230,000 years ago (~100 km³)[21]
* Mamaku Ignimbrite, Rotorua Caldera, Taupo Volcanic Zone, North Island, New Zealand—240,000 years ago (>280 km³)[22]
* Matahina Ignimbrite, Haroharo Caldera, Taupo Volcanic Zone, North Island, New Zealand—280,000 years ago (~120 km³)[23]
* Long Valley Caldera, Bishop Tuff, California, United States—~760,000 years ago (600 km³)
* Valles Caldera, New Mexico, United States—~1.15 million years ago (~600 km³)[24]
* Mangakino, Taupo Volcanic Zone, North Island, New Zealand—three eruptions from 0.97 to 1.23 million years ago (each > 300 km³)[25]
* Henry's Fork Caldera, Mesa Falls Tuff, Idaho, United States, Yellowstone hotspot—1.3 million years ago (280 km³)[8]
* Karymshina, Kamchatka, Russia—1.78±0.02 million years ago[26]
* Pastos Grandes Ignimbrite, Pastos Grandes Caldera—2.9 million years ago (>820 km³)[27]

* Bruneau-Jarbidge, Idaho, United States, Yellowstone hotspot—~10–12 million years ago (>250 km³) (responsible for the Ashfall Fossil Beds ~1,600 km to the east[28])
* Bennett Lake Volcanic Complex, British Columbia/Yukon, Canada—~50 million years ago (850 km³)[29]

Stolen from Link. I does appear that the US likes its VEI7,8. Mind you they are only the ones we know about.

Holy crap, that Lancaster video was scary! Does anyone know, was that the truckstop at Lancaster (up by Bruces BBQ) or some company yard? Hubby always stays at the truckstop at Lancaster when he's in Dallas - glad he wasn't down there today!! He's been lucky this year - ahead or behind the bad ones. Hope his luck holds.

You know those semis are around 40K lbs empty, and twice that fully loaded. And they got sucked up like potato chips! Cripes!

Roads got wet here with small hail but temps were near 90 here with humidity above 70 percent, not surprised by the tornadoes or storms at all. Unfortunately looks like a stormy 8 to 10 weeks ahead.

My bad. I thought you were referring to the 1908 Tunguska event... Wiki...At around 7:17 a.m. local time, Evenks natives and Russian settlers in the hills northwest of Lake Baikal observed a column of bluish light, nearly as bright as the Sun, moving across the sky. About 10 minutes later, there was a flash and a sound similar to artillery fire. Eyewitnesses closer to the explosion reported the sound source moving east to north. The sounds were accompanied by a shock wave that knocked people off their feet and broke windows hundreds of kilometres away. The majority of witnesses reported only the sounds and the tremors, and not the sighting of the explosion. Eyewitness accounts differ as to the sequence of events and their overall duration.

The explosion registered on seismic stations across Eurasia. In some places the shock wave would have been equivalent to an earthquake of 5.0 on the Richter scale.[12] It also produced fluctuations in atmospheric pressure strong enough to be detected in Great Britain. Over the next few days, night skies in Asia and Europe were aglow;[13] it has been theorized that this was due to light passing through high-altitude ice particles formed at extremely low temperatures, a phenomenon that occurred again when the Space Shuttle re-entered the Earth's atmosphere.[14][15] In the United States, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and the Mount Wilson Observatory observed a decrease in atmospheric transparency that lasted for several months, from suspended dust.
[edit] Selected eyewitness reports

Testimony of S. Semenov, as recorded by Leonid Kulik's expedition in 1930.[16]

At breakfast time I was sitting by the house at Vanavara Trading Post [65 kilometres/40 miles south of the explosion], facing north. [...] I suddenly saw that directly to the north, over Onkoul's Tunguska Road, the sky split in two and fire appeared high and wide over the forest [as Semenov showed, about 50 degrees up%u2014expedition note]. The split in the sky grew larger, and the entire northern side was covered with fire. At that moment I became so hot that I couldn't bear it, as if my shirt was on fire; from the northern side, where the fire was, came strong heat. I wanted to tear off my shirt and throw it down, but then the sky shut closed, and a strong thump sounded, and I was thrown a few metres. I lost my senses for a moment, but then my wife ran out and led me to the house. After that such noise came, as if rocks were falling or cannons were firing, the earth shook, and when I was on the ground, I pressed my head down, fearing rocks would smash it. When the sky opened up, hot wind raced between the houses, like from cannons, which left traces in the ground like pathways, and it damaged some crops. Later we saw that many windows were shattered, and in the barn a part of the iron lock snapped.
Rev. 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth.
--------------------------------
What would soon follow, coincidentally, would be two world wars, that would lead to the development of the atomic bomb, threatening every man, woman, and child on the planet.

Not to mention the ingenious use of fossil fuels that would literally become like the breath of a dragon upon the earth.

Hence, the other curious name ... "Prince of the Power of the Air?" An odd name to say the least.

It's pure speculation, of course, but an interesting myth, or perhaps not, when compared to our modern day reality.

Coincidently, 3 of the 7 supervolcanoes are located in the U.S. Wonderful isnt it........2
The Long Valley Caldera
The Long Valley Caldera The World's 6 Known SuperVolcanoes Anything picture
Second only to Yellowstone in North America is the Long Valley caldera, in east-central California. The 200-square-mile caldera is just south of Mono Lake, near the Nevada state line. The biggest eruption from Long Valley was 760,000 years ago, which unleashed 2,000 to 3,000 times as much lava and ash as Mount St. Helens, after which the caldera floor dropped about a MILE, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Some of the ash reached as far east as Nebraska. What worries geologists today was a swarm of strong earthquakes in 1980 and the 10-inch rise of about 100 square miles of caldera floor. Then, in the early 1990s, large amounts of carbon dioxide gas from magma below began seeping up through the ground and killing trees in the Mammoth Mountain part of the caldera. When these sorts of signs are present, it could mean trouble is centuries, decades, or even YEARS away, say volcanologists.

Valles Caldera
Valles Caldera The World's 6 Known SuperVolcanoes Anything picture
The 175-square-mile Valles caldera forms a large pock in the middle of northern New Mexico, west of Santa Fe. It last exploded 1.2 million and 1.6 million years ago, piling up 150 cubic miles of rock and blasting ash as far away as Iowa. As with other calderas, there are still signs of heat below: hot springs are still active around Valles. Geologists suspect the cause of Valles caldera has something to do with how the western United States' portion of the North American tectonic plate is being pulled apart.

Very informative...the last known super volcanic eruption was. Around 70,000 years ago that of Toba

The Yellowstone Caldera
SuperVolcanoes
Unbeknownst to most, Yellowstone National Park sits on a subterranean chamber of molten rock and gasses so vast that it is arguably one of the largest active volcanoes in the world. A magma chamber not far below the surface fuels all the volcanic attractions that Yellowstone is famous for. The last major eruption at Yellowstone, some 640,000 years ago, ejected 8,000 times the ash and lava of Mount St. Helens. It is alive and well today, and is the scientific basis for the hilarious volcanic explosion seen in the movie 2012 that blew up Woody Harrelson and, somehow, NOT John Cusack.

But a small volcano that produces  a heavy portion of sulfates will do more to our environment and weather than a larger more explosive eruption. Yellowstone not going to go boom with out a wind up of increased activity of a slower gentler nature to start with. I other words we will see it coming to life.

Yep Cascadia is definately one to watch, New Madrid who knows, Yellowstone not very likely right now.
Do remember that most disasters happen in unexpected places and times ( must be as people are rarely prepared.)


A Yellowstone eruption would be catastophic...being one of only 7 known super volcanoes on earth. The volume of super volcanoes are many times those of regular volcanoes

Not enough data but that would not be a logical conclusion.
