BURLESON, Texas -- The National Weather Service says tornadoes have touched down in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and there is at least one report of damage.

Local television footage shows a large funnel cloud on the ground near Interstate 35 south of Dallas. The weather service says the "large and extremely dangerous" tornado was near Lancaster about 20 miles south of Dallas and moving north.

The weather service is also reporting other developing tornadoes as a band of severe storms moves through the area.
