    - sjunca, CNN iReport producer

    My girlfriend and I were riding back from Dallas when some hail started falling. We decided to pull over and a few minutes later a tornado formed right behind the gas station we were in. I took a few seconds of video before we headed to the freezer in the back(apparently prototcol for tornados) for shelter. A few minutes later the wind roared and lights went out. People screamed, cried, and prayed but it soon passed. I went outside to take some more footage as the tornado blazed down the highway and eventually it left the ground and unraveled into the clouds from which it came. This was the first of multiple tornados to hit in the area and we are still under a tornado alert.
