Texas storms cause travel troubles (video)

The severe storms and{ }tornadoes that swept through Dallas and Fort Worth Tuesday is affecting flights at Reagan National Airport and across the country.

A destructive reminder of a young tornado season left thousands without power and hundreds of homes pummeled or worse Wednesday, after the National Weather Service said as many as a dozen twisters touched down in a wrecking-ball swath of violent weather that stretched across Dallas and Fort Worth.

Despite the intensity of the slow-moving storms, as of late Tuesday no fatalities or serious injuries had been reported, though there were several less serious injuries.

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport canceled hundreds of flights and diverted others heading its way. In one industrial section of Dallas, rows of empty tractor-trailers crumpled like soda cans littered a parking lot.

In our region, some passengers at Reagan National Airport have been left scrambling for a plan B. ABC7’s Brianne Carter has more.
