However, the mayors of Arlington and Lancaster, Texas, have both declared states of disaster for their cities after reports of extensive damage, according to CBS Dallas-Fort Worth.
About 12 tornadoes were estimated to have touched down throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area on Tuesday, April 3, the Associated Press reports. No deaths have been reported.
According to Reuters, there's a higher survival rate when tornadoes occur during the day because people can hear warnings and take cover.
For those interested in helping tornado victims, FOX News recommends donating money to the Red Cross or volunteering for clean-up efforts.
