A line of thunderstorms has moved across the state of Texas in America with reports of tornados and lightning lighting up the sky through the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Tornado sirens were set off in Arlington and Dallas after warnings were issued. Several Twitter users reported tornados in their area, but meteorologists could not confirm whether they touched down.
However the lightning display in what is known as shelf cloud was impressive, lighting up the sky.
There were also localised reports of damage and debris.
