A family who lives on Evangeline Way, in the Lochwood neighborhood of East Dallas, said a neighbor's tree plunged through their roof some time in the night.
"My wife and I waere asleep around midnight and we hear this horrendous crash and the next thing you know I'm on top of her trying to shield her," the homeowner said.
No one was injured, but debris from the crushed roof rained down on the couple's bed.
Lights stretched across downtown Dallas' Main Street bounced and ripped free, stop lights bent in the wind, and construction barriers were toppled.
At the Galleria, more strands of lights danced to the rythem of the wind and one of the mall's many tannenbaums tumbled.
Wind gusts of 50 to 55 mph were felt across the area since the storm began moving in late Wednesday night.
FOX 4 meteorologists said North Texans can expect gusts up to 35 mph through Thursday morning, bringing the wind chill "feels like" temperature to the 20s.
Then the winds will slowly die off and give way to sunny skies and a high in the low 50s Thursday afternoon.
