    (CNN) -- Tornadoes ripped through the Dallas-Fort Worth area Tuesday, tossing tractor-trailers like toys and causing widespread damage to homes and other structures.

    One tornado was spotted on the ground five miles east of downtown Dallas, the National Weather Service said. All flights at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport were grounded and passengers and airport employees were moved into shelters as the storm system spawned multiple funnel clouds. Flights at Dallas Love Field airport were also grounded.

    "There may be storms behind the storms, making damage in places that already have damage and that now is happening for Arlington, Texas," said CNN meteorologist Chad Myers.

    Severe damage was reported there and the mayor of the city signed a disaster declaration to help cope with the destruction.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    When they get tired of the storms they're supposed to send them here, we have been bracing for them all day but so far just a little light rain.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
