A tornado descended upon Dallas, Texas, on Sunday night. The storm ripped through buildings, including a shopping centre and left over 112,000 people without electricity.

There was a large presence of emergency services to help deal with the aftermath. Police worked overnight to check on residents.

A citizen recounted hearing the tornado sirens and receiving warnings on his phone. He recalled how his "whole neighbourhood was wrecked," after the tornado had passed.

Three people are being treated with storm-related injuries that are not life threatening, according to reports. Six schools in Dallas were closed on Monday as a result of structural damage inflicted on the facilities.

Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas have been issued with a tornado watch and severe weather warning.
