On October 10, 2019, thunderstorms caused by a cold front, began in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. Tornadoes began to develop in the area and the most powerful of the multiple tornados caused damage in a path of over two miles in the northern Dallas area. The tornado caused the most costly property damage in Texas history. As the storm moved northeast from the western end of Northwest Dallas to Garland, it damaged or destroyed many buildings.
One of the the many commercial buildings in its path was this Home Depot store on the southeast corner of Forest Lane U.S. Route 75. A month later, these images capture the aftermath, showing the northern end of the store blown away.
The store, initially fenced off and closed, reopened almost a year later. These images show the devastation caused by the tornado.
