10:58 am on 4 April 2012

Two tornadoes swept through the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area in Texas on Tuesday.

Roofs were pulled off houses and tractor trailers were tossed around.

All planes were grounded at Dallas-Fort Worth International airport,

There were no immediate reports of injuries or deaths.

New Zealand MP Jacinda Ardern, who was at the airport, says it was a frightening experience.

She told Morning Report she heard a huge roar before the tornado struck. Hailstones the size of golfballs had since been falling.
