(DALLAS) — Tornadoes have touched down in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where some significant damage is being reported.

At one point, live aerial video of the scene showed what appeared to be a tractor-trailer being lifted off the ground and tossed some distance.

Multiple tornado warnings have been issued.

Lieutenant Tim Jones of the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office said the twisters came with little warning.

“We had a tornado touch down in a rural area of our county,” he said. “Couple of homes have been hit. … Severe damage to those homes; severe damage to quite a few buildings.”
