High winds some authorities say may have been a tornado toppled several tractor-trailers and other vehicles on northbound Interstate 35E Monday night, May 3. Several other trucks were pushed into the center divider.

The mishaps took place between Waxahachie and Forreston, about 30 miles south of Dallas. 

TV station WFAA reports three people were taken to the hospital, but their conditions weren’t immediately known.

Across the South, more than 100,000 customers in Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky had no electricity this morning.

Severe thunderstorms are forecast for much of the rest of the South today.
