NATURAL DISASTERS

Superstorms and Scorchers: #3 Texas Tornadoes

Multiple tornadoes descended on the Dallas area one afternoon in April. Amid the drought and heat wave this year, it's hard to complain about the much-needed rain the tornadoes brought to the Lone Star State. Still, no one was happy about the flooded roads and the chaos that followed. In Dallas, one tornado passed through a Schneider National facility, throwing many-ton trucks into the sky, which then dropped screaming back to earth. Dozens of flights headed for Dallas had to be rerouted to avoid the storms, and more than 100 aircraft took a beating from the twisters.
