    In Arlington (north) we had sirens going off for at least a half hour. I believe this was caused by the tornado that hit Grand Prairie, which is a couple miles east.

    My biggest concern last night was what if a tornado hit Comanche Peak (nuclear power plant). The worst hit areas are pretty close to it. Not hearing any reports of damage at the plant, thank goodness.

    My company has lots of crews out today dealing with downed powerlines. Haven't heard about any major line damage, but its still early.

      Major lines down going to the nuclear plant and some down north of the metroplex.
