The Storm Prediction Center said severe thunderstorms could continue through Monday night along the Gulf Coast from southeastern Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle, with damaging winds and a couple of tornadoes possible.

There were no reports of fatalities or serious injuries as of 12:20 a.m. Monday, according to a release from the city of Dallas.

Radar confirmed the tornado struck near Love Field Airport and moved northeast through the city around 9 p.m. Sunday, said National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Godwin.

Per CBS Dallas-Fort Worth, at least six people received treatment in a hospital with storm-related injuries on Sunday night. The tornado's path took it through the Walnut Lane area before it continued through sections of Garland, Richardson, Rockwall and Sachse. Severe storms containing large hail and damaging winds are moving toward Kaufman at 35 miles per hour, NWS said.

NWS meteorologist Jennifer Dunn said there may have been two or more tornadoes in north Texas but the extent would not be known until later when crews have surveyed the damage.

Nearby, Georges Benamou said he was in his bedroom when a tree branch fell through the flat roof of his single-story home and into the living room. There were no reports of fatalities or missing people as of Monday evening.

Jaylen Brown agrees to 4-year, $115 million extension with Celtics
Glushon and Celtics general manager Danny Ainge negotiated most of the deal's details over the weekend in Boston. The Boston Celtics have signed forward Jaylen Brown to a contract extension, the team announced today.

According to Weather Nation TV, the tornado stayed on the ground for approximately 10 miles, cutting through University Park before crossing 635 and moving through the northern edge of Dallas County, including parts of Richardson and Garland.

At 2 a.m. CDT, the city opened the Bachman Recreation Center for those seeking shelter or refuge from widespread power outages and structural damage caused by the tornado. He added that fewer than a dozen people remained there Monday morning.

Seven people escaped a structure that collapsed in northwest Dallas, but Dallas Fire-Rescue were searching to see if anyone was left inside. No one was injured in the home. Electric utility Oncor said that more than 150,000 customers are without power in East Texas due to the severe storms in the region. By the time of the press conference, that number had dropped to 55,000. Approximately 35 traffic signals aren't communicating.

Emergency officials asked residents to be alert at intersections, and to stay away from structures that might be risky. We should have broken into football programming sooner. "But our top priority has been making sure that everyone in our city is safe". "Property damage, we're not concerned about that. we've dealt with [that] before".

Tens of thousands of people were left without electricity.
