CNN cameras caught the action yesterday as a huge tornado bore down on Dallas, Texas. In the clip below, anchor Brooke Baldwin and reporter Ed Lavandera watched as truck trailers were thrown up into the air and torn to pieces while power transformers exploded and the amount of rain and debris in the air turned everything a muddy gray.

Lavendera noted that the storm was so violent that it was creating what's called a "debris ball," an airborne mass of debris so large that it appears on weather radar.
