An apocalyptical tornado and violent storms are responsible for killing at least 11 people in Dallas area on December 26, 2015.

However, the full extent of the damage from Saturday’s spate of storms isn’t yet known… But the region should get ready for another hit as more “severe” weather and heavy rain are forecast.

The storms leveled homes and downed power lines. Heavy rainfall also triggered flash flooding across much of Dallas County.

Meanwhile, weather sirens sounded and flooding was reported in Dallas itself.

The twisters — accompanied by torrential rain, wind and some hail — were part of a weather system that could produce major flooding from north Texas through eastern Oklahoma, eastern Kansas, western Arkansas and parts of Missouri.

The same storm system that spawned the deadly twisters in the Dallas area was expected to leave as much as 2 feet of snow in west and north Texas.
