(RNN) - The Dallas-Fort Worth area is reviewing the damage after 13 tornadoes touched down in North Texas Tuesday. Despite the severity of the storms, no deaths or serious injuries have been reported.
"We're still assessing the situation. The Dallas-Fort Worth area really dodged a bullet," said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings on CNN. "Hundreds and hundreds of homes destroyed, only three people taken to the hospital; we're looking at something of a miracle, it really is amazing."
The storm hit after 1 p.m. CT. Dramatic video coming out of north Texas showed tractor-trailers being tossed in the air like toys.
A spokesperson for Schneider National Trucking Company, whose trailers were damaged, told CNN that an empty trailer weighs 14,000 pounds, a tractor weighs 20,000 and a full rig weighs 46,000.
Some of those trailers landed in houses, according to Rawlings.
"It was amazing that no one was in those homes, I think they were at work," he said.
Rawlings said it would take a few days before there will be an exact dollar amount for the damage.
"It was like 'The Wizard of Oz,'" Gwen Dabbs told KTVT of Lancaster, TX, south of Dallas. Dabbs huddled in a corner of her living room covered with blankets as the tornado passed.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that more than 100 homes in Arlington, TX, about 50 homes and five businesses in Kennedale, TX, and 300 homes and businesses in hard-hit Lancaster, TX, east of Dallas, were significantly damaged, according to prelimiary reports.
The National Weather Service planned to start conducting storm surveys Wednesday morning.
Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport has been examining more than 100 planes damaged by hail during the storm. CNN reported 600 flights were canceled and dozens of incoming flights were diverted to other airports.
The Red Cross sent 1,400 blankets to the airport for those who were stranded, according to the Twitter feeds of both the airport and Red Cross.
Southwest Airlines canceled more than 40 flights out of Love Field in Dallas.
No damage has been reported at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
NWS meteorologist Matt Bishop told the Associated Press Tuesday's outbreak suggested "we're on pace to be above normal" in the amount of tornadoes and severe storms this year.
Tornado season usually runs from March to June, with April being the worst month. Tuesday's outbreak was the 38th anniversary of the super tornado outbreak, when 148 touched down in 13 states.
According to the NWS, 330 people were killed, 5,484 were injured and damage covered 2,500 miles during the 16-hour rampage.
