Rescue crews are searching through the rubble of homes and businesses torn apart by a tornado that ripped through the Dallas area without warning as one person has been confirmed dead in Arkansas after the storm moved to the northeast.

The tornado struck Dallas at about 9pm on Sunday night with devastating 111mph winds.

Devastating aerial footage has since emerged showing the destruction caused by the storm.

There were no reports of fatalities in Texas early Monday morning but search crews say multiple people were hospitalized for injuries.

Tens of thousands of people were without electricity following the storm.

One person died in northwest Arkansas when a tree fell on a home in Rogers, about 300 miles northeast of Dallas.

Tornado warnings were in effect on Monday morning in far eastern Arkansas near the Mississippi River as the storm system moved to the east.

Areas of Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee could see severe thunderstorms later on Monday.

In Texas, heavy damage was reported in northwest Dallas and Richardson. Nearly 140,000 electric customers were without power as of 4am on Monday, according to Oncor’s online outage map. The electric utility said storms across East Texas had caused significant damage to power lines.

Around 65,000 of the affected electric customers were within Dallas, according to the city, which said it would open a shelter.

Crews searched through homes and businesses that were accessible for about six hours overnight, but were hampered by ‘limited access and lack of proper lighting,’ Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.

A second set of teams were to resume search efforts in daylight.

Seven people escaped a structure that collapsed in northwest Dallas, but Dallas Fire-Rescue were searching to see if anyone was left inside.

WFAA-TV reported that a convenience store collapsed in the storm, but the clerk told the station that everyone who was inside made it out safely.
