An intense fog settled over the Dallas-Fort Worth area Monday morning, as people awoke to assess damage from storms that pummeled the region Sunday night.
The overnight storms brought blustering winds, record-setting rain and at least one tornado, but come morning, the damage appeared to be isolated to a few hard-hit areas.
The weather system dumped 3.16 inches of rain at DFW International Airport on Sunday, a record for the date. The normal rainfall total for the entire month of January is 2.13 inches, according to the National Weather Service at Fort Worth.
Officials estimated that more than 30 homes had been damaged in Frisco, where residents called to report knocked-out windows, blown-over chimneys and mangled trees and fences. The fire department said early Monday that no injuries had been reported.
In Grand Prairie, where the National Weather Service said a tornado touched down around 8:45 p.m., a building was demolished in the 700 block of West Jefferson Street, police said. Minor damage was also reported to hangar doors at the Grand Prairie Municipal Airport.
Reports of damage and flooding also came from cities such as Euless and Lewisville.
