Photos of the Damage

A day after up to a dozen twisters struck the Dallas metropolitan area, residents are trying to salvage their belongings. The American Red Cross says an early estimate has found 650 damaged or destroyed homes.

Injuries — but no fatalities — were reported throughout the area. Hundreds of flights were canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport flights, and 1,400 travelers had no choice but to sleep in the airport overnight.

The slow-moving storm left thousands without power. The National Weather Service said as many as a dozen twisters touched down in the Dallas/Forth Worth area.

April is typically the worst month for storms in a season that stretches from March to June, weather service meteorologist Matt Bishop told The Associated Press. He added that Tuesday's outburst suggests that "we're on pace to be above normal."
