Shocking cell phone video has emerged from yesterday’s destructive storms in Dallas, TX. At least one tornado was confirmed, and Eric Meyers caught it on tape. The screaming leaves little doubt of where Meyers is, “We are in the tornado!”:
Authorities in northeast Texas were assessing damage Monday morning after a tornado destroyed homes, knocked train cars off their tracks and injured at least four people.
Five homes in Rice, Texas, were destroyed as 125 mph winds whipped through a seven-mile swath of Navarro County Sunday evening, said Eric Meyers, the county’s emergency management coordinator.
Meyers rode out the tornado inside a vehicle and videotaped the twister as it tore the roof off a school about a block away.
“We are in the tornado! We are in the tornado!” Meyers yells several times in the video.
“The sheer power was just amazing,” Meyers said in an interview Monday on CNN’s “American Morning” program.
