I was blessed, had tornados to west that worked their way south to north and killed 9, and east that followed the same south north path that caused damage but not deaths. I need the roof to hold a few more days, all the rain has destroyed part of it and everyone is backed up because of the all the damage done and the storms delaying things. I cannot tarp it as I am too afraid of the damned thing.
Drove through one of the worst hit spots on my way to airport, I-30 around the Bush Turnpike in Garland. I've never seen something so destroyed. 4 story light polls bent like straws, billboards stripped bare and folded over, light polls snapped like twigs, metal Roofing wrapped around damn near everything. Probably most shocking was seeing dishes, a/c units and ceiling fans just laying in the middle of the interstate like it was nothing.
The early estimate for that one was an EF4 which is just below the worst. Of course now that threat is still present, though greatly diminished, while we are all now dealing with flooding.

Best of luck, I work with the NOAA as a trained spotter, I usually get paid to go do storm reports, missed out on this one because of the holidays, but Texans are tough, and you'll pull through but looks like you had the kitchen sink thrown at you.
