There was a scary scene in Frisco, Texas (a suburb of Dallas) last night at the Double-A Roughriders’ stadium. There were photographs taken at the Dr Pepper Ballpark with a “tornadic” supercell in the background.

 

As you can probably assume, the game was postponed.

 

The crazy part is that they don’t even mention the tornado like funnel cloud, just heavy rain.

“With the score tied at 2-2 in the third, heavy rains saturated the field and the game was called shortly thereafter,” it says on the Roughrider’s website.

Though living in Texas it is common to see people ignore tornado warnings. I live in Dallas and I know I did yesterday when the warning popped up on my phone.
