DFW weather updates: After multiple confirmed tornadoes, all active warnings across North Texas have expired

Here's a look at the severe weather and the impact it had on the roads and flights in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

DALLAS — A line of severe weather moved eastward across North Texas on Tuesday morning. At some point or another, most of the Dallas-Fort Worth region fell under a tornado warning.

Following multiple confirmed tornadoes, however, all active warnings across North Texas have expired as of 10:45 a.m. As of Wednesday morning, at least five tornadoes have been confirmed.

A tornado has been confirmed in the River Oaks area in Tarrant County. It's reported to have been moving at 30 mph.

Twitter user Erik Fox posted a video of the tornado. Fort Worth Star Telegram senior editor Matt Leclercq also tweeted video of sirens downtown.

At around 6 a.m., a tornado was confirmed between Eastland and Erath counties. It was reported southeast of Ranger and moving northeast at about 40 mph. 

An additional tornado has also been observed near Brock in Parker County, where the storm also included pea-sized hail. 

A home is also reportedly destroyed just south of Decatur as part of a rotation seen on radar near Wise County.

Decatur resident Michael Lopez shares the below video he shot of the storm passing through his neighborhood in Wise County, located about three to five miles south of Downtown Decatur. Lopez said his neighbor's home was "completely destroyed."

There are also multiple reports of damage in Grapevine, where multiple prominent commercial buildings were damaged and at least five people were injured as a result of the storm.
