Friends, this is the stuff that nightmares are made of. In fact, I'm fairly certain I've had at least three nightmares over the course of my life in which I found myself facing a similar situation.

Yesterday morning, a total of three tornados raged through Tarrant County according to the National Weather Service. The tornados, of course, left destruction in their wake.

A story shared by Yahoo News reports "Multiple buildings were damaged and five people were taken to hospital after a tornadic storm hit Grapevine, Texas, on Tuesday, December 13, local authorities said."

A joint release shared by the City of Grapevine, Texas, and Grapevine Police revealed the extent of the destruction, as well as the ongoing response efforts.

"The City of Grapevine is providing ongoing support to homeowners and businesses impacted by tornado damage. At approximately 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday, December 13, 2022, storms moved through Grapevine, causing significant damage that spanned several miles.

 

The first area of impact occurred just off of SH-26 and SH-114, at the Sam’s Club and Walmart Supercenter. Other nearby businesses were also hit as the storm traveled east along Northwest Highway, downing power lines and uprooting trees, before causing damage to the city service center and Grapevine Mills Mall."

This morning, the Weather Channel shared a video revealing one scary moment in Grapevine, TX when drivers see the tornado approaching and begin turning their vehicles around in an effort to escape.

The video below, also shared by ABC News, was made available on TikTok.
