A Pickup Truck Gets Rolled During a Tornado . . . and Then Drives Away
Several tornadoes touched down in Texas on Monday. There's a video making the rounds of a pickup truck on a freeway getting flipped around like a toy, and then driving away. Another clip shows chaos outside a Walmart as people rush inside.
A string of bad weather
Parish President Guy McInnis said there was widespread damage. The tornado appeared to have also moved through the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. But New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell tweeted that there were no reports of casualties or significant damage to the city. The same storm system had caused tornadoes that hit parts of Texas and Oklahoma, killing one person and causing widespread damage. Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced a disaster declaration for 16 counties.
