Mother Nature wreaked havoc in North Texas with gusts of wind reaching speeds of 70 miles per hour.

CBS Local reported there were no tornado warnings being issued in the area, but it left terrified witnesses wondering if they were in Texas anymore.


Residents awoke in the early hours to sirens warning of the damaging winds that wreaked havoc on businesses and homes.

Pictures and video from the malevolent force of nature were posted on social media, including footage from a gust of wind knocking a semi-truck over on its side while in transit.

The voice of a terrified bystander can be heard in this video as he shouts, "Oh my god, oh my god" while witnessing the truck turn over on its side on a highway.


Architectural casualties included an Amazon logistics facility in Irving whose detached steel roof hurtled through the air and crashed into parked cars in the adjacent lot near DFW Airport.

Many power lines also came down.




Across the way, an FAA radio tower was uprooted by the relentless gust that left nearby residents bracing themselves throughout the morning against further devastation.
