Yes, I was in Dallas - April 3, 2012

As you have probably read, there were several tornadoes in and around Dallas and Fort Worth yesterday. I, along with about 300 9-1-1 professionals were at a conference in downtown Dallas. The staff of the Fairmont Hotel did a wonderful job in informing everyone of what was going on. We all were moved into interior rooms that did not have exterior windows.  It was interesting the impact on the wireless/cellular network this event had. Text messages which would normally be almost instant were taking several minutes to be received. We were lucky, many others that live in the effected area were not so lucky.
