    It just popped up on my TV. Cowboys rookie camp had bubble collapse on people inside after storm passes through Valley Ranch. There are still people trapped inside at the moment.

    Holy crap, I hope everyone is okay.

    I always wondered just how sturdy those things really are

    Call me callous, but WTF was everyone doing in an inflatable building during a tornado watch?

    God bless the fans, staff, and players. This is a horrible thing to happen and I can only hope and pray that no one was seriously injured or worse.

    At first glance, this doesnt look good at all.

    I'm serious. How on earth do they allow people to remain in a building supported by air pressure during a tornado? Are they not aware of what happens when tornadoes hit?

    No players with significant injuries. One coach taken away in an ambulance.

    From what I can tell locally, the building had been fine during other severe weather situations.

    From the press update

    70 total people in the building

    10 taken to hospitals
    2 walk in to area hospital
    2 or 3 with serious injuries beyond cuts, bruises (no lives in danger)

    That's good to know!!!!! Next time a bad storm comes up, I plan to run right out of my home and find a sturdy bubble. Nothing like having the advantage of staying well informed.:tiphat:

    A friend called me from Dallas and said somebody is listed in critical condition. Apparently he was impaled with something. Suspected tornado.

    Praying for all involved.
