Texas has been hit by two huge tornadoes flattening entire neighbourhoods across the state.

These are the latest pictures from Dallas where two twisters hit within around 20 minutes of one another. Cars flipped up and power lines came down.

These are the frightening scenes as one of the tornadoes pummelled the landscape. Shots from this chopper show how a truck park was soon turned into what looks like a toy town in the melee.

At this stage there are no reports of any injuries and this man considers himself lucky to be alive.

This nursing home in Arlington had to evacuate all of its residents. Three people suffered minor injuries after the swirling winds clipped the building.

Now it's left for families to try and salvage any belongings they can from the homes they loved so dearly. So far there've been no reports of any deaths.
