Tornadoes and Baseball-Sized Hail Rip Through North Texas

The Takeaway
Late yesterday afternoon, tornadoes touched down in Johnson County, Texas then violently tore north to the Dallas-Fort Worth international airport. Along the way, hundreds of homes were destroyed, power lines were ripped down, and hail the size of baseballs descended from the sky. Lt. Tim Jones from the Sheriff's Office in Johnson County explains how the residents of his rural region dealt with the severe weather. And David Magana, Public Affairs officer for the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport talks with us about the damage to equipment, and what happened to passengers stranded in the airport last night.
