Transcript for Record Flames and Record Floods Across the Nation
severe summer weather up to 3 inches of rain falling in north Carolina in hours leading to flash flooding, powerful wind gusts causing damage overnight. You know ginger is tracking it all for us this morning. Yes, all over it. You see this from the university of North Dakota, parking lots and roads full of water. To what is now the largest wildfire in Washington state's history, a lot of the storm reports, almost 100 riding along the jet stream and from the Carolinas to Nevada, big problems. A dangerous dichotomy of record flames and record flooding across the nation. Durham, North Carolina, flooding in a flash. 3 inches of rain falling in just three hours. Abandoned cars drowning in oppressive waters. In North Dakota, ferocious winds up to 80 miles per hour slicing across the state. And at the university of north Dakota, parking lots like pools. Outside Reno, Nevada, pounding hail swallowing this backyard and in Washington state, that brutal battle we've seen every step and flight along the way. The Carlton complex fire now the largest in Washington's history, flames chewing away at a quarter of a million acres causing widespread power outages. There are still lots of homes threatened. There are still places that could burn. And the next couple of days strong storms could be possible in many so of those burn areas so we'll watch with issues for that. But today this afternoon and evening, Chicago, Milwaukee, all the way back to the west into parts of Kansas have to be on the lookout. Damaging wind, isolated tornadoes and hail.
