Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin said he was not in his house that was badly damaged by a tornado that touched down in Dallas on Sunday night, causing structural damage and knocking out electricity to thousands.
Seguin said in a post on Twitter that he had seen the area affected by the tornado in the aftermath of the storm, and it was an "extremely sad sight to see." Seguin is selling the home but living in another one, he said.
Thanks to everyone reaching out about the news tonight, I am safe. Luckily this is my house for sale and I have moved into a new one. I just left the area and it is an extremely sad sight to see. Prayers to everyone affected by the tornado. https://t.co/wT6XlUBi8N— Tyler Seguin (@tseguinofficial) October 21, 2019
