Texas Tornado

An eerie look at one of the tornados that ripped through northern Texas on Tuesday. 

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Northern Texas is not where most people want to be in tornado season, as a quick glance at the “tornado” tag on Tumblr would indicate. Go on, we’ll wait while you look.

Bet you didn’t think semi trucks could fly!

With a reported four simultaneous tornado touchdowns in Dallas on April 3, tennis ball-sized hail, and up to 13 tornados reported throughout the Arlington-Dallas region, the normal rules of gravity were temporarily suspended.  

Texans, understandably, have better things to do the day after a tornado than sit around making GIFs. But we did find one authentic GIF over at BuzzFeed on Tumblr. So far it has 527 notes.
