18 tornadoes reported in Tuesday's outbreak in northeast Texas

The Storm Prediction Center has logged 18 tornado reports from the outbreak that hit the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex Tuesday.

Fortunately, no deaths have been reported. Here’s coverage of the tornadoes by The Weather Channel.

Here is helicopter footage of one of the tornadoes (likely the same one featured in the Weather Channel coverage above) from Channel 5, NBCDFW.

Damage estimates figure to run into the tens of millions of dollars. Based on photos of the damage I’ve seen in Arlington, I’m guessing at least one tornado will measure EF2 on the Enhanced Fujita scale. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were more.
