Newly released video from the North Texas Tollway Authority shows the tremendous force of a tornado that hit Garland, Texas, the day after Christmas, killing 11 people.

The National Weather Service in Dallas-Fort Worth determined the destruction left behind in hard-hit Garland was the work of an EF-4 tornado, which typically has wind gusts of between 166 and 200 mph.

The video shows the tornado tearing across Interstate 30 and the Bush Turnpike on December 26, according to KTLA sister station KDAF.

Many of those killed in the storm died inside their cars, authorities said.

About 1,100 families were displaced by the damage caused by the fierce weather, according to the Red Cross.
