Meantime, to the violent storm system kicking up again today. At least nine confirmed tornadoes from Texas to Tennessee and overnight, that tornado that hit Dallas, they have now revealed it was an ef-3. The images overnight. The lightning showing that tornado in north Dallas. It was an ef-3 with 140-mile-an-hour winds, struck after dark. Destroying so many homes and buildings. This Home Depot, ripping off the roof, shattering the walls. The tornado then tracked east, and today, passengers at the Memphis airport rushing to seek shelter. That entire system still on the move tonight, shifting eastward and we do have the new track. And ABC's Marcus Moore on the scene in Dallas.

So true. Marcus Moore live from Dallas tonight, and Marcus, you were telling us, that was a fire station you're standing in front of? Reporter: Yeah, David. It is absolutely an astonishing scene here. There were four Dallas firefighters inside of an engine that was parked right here when that tornado hit. You can see it tore the right away entirely.

Pensacola, Panama City, still in line were strong, if not severe storms tonight with some heavy rain. That's why we have them highlighted there on the map. You want sustained winds?
