A home in Forney, Texas, lies in shambles after a tornado ripped through on April 3.
The Texas tornadoes peeled roofs off homes, tossed big-rig trucks into the air, and left flattened tractor trailers strewn along highways and parking lots, according to the Associated Press.
"It was like The Wizard of Oz," resident Gwen Dabbs, who survived the tempest huddled in a corner of her living room, told CNN.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings told CNN that the damage from the tornadoes could have been much worse.
"The big headline is that we dodged a big bullet," he told the news agency.
"We're saddened by the damage the system did, but we've got nobody that's dead and no significant injures. It really is a miracle."
