No serious injuries were reported in the storms.
Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth believe a twister hit the Arlington area based on radar data. A survey team will be out Wednesday in the hardest-hit areas.
“They will be out to determine how intense the winds were at that time,” said meteorologist Jason Dunn with the National Weather Service in a telephone interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “They also will be out to try and track it and how wide it was.”
Dunn said a tornado in November is not rare in North Texas. “We could get a tornado any month of the year here,” Dunn said.
