Msnbc.com reports, updated at 4:45 p.m. ET: At least two tornadoes touched down in areas south of Dallas on Tuesday, causing widespread damage. The National Weather Service described them as "large and extremely dangerous" as the storm system moved northeast and later spawned another tornado in Forney, a suburb just east of Dallas, where a school saw roof damage, NBC News reported.

With the storms still moving through the region, many properties were damaged or destroyed and the Dallas Fort-Worth International Airport was hit by large hail, NBCDFW.com reported.
