Transcript for Severe Weather in Midwest, Southeast Headed for Mid-Atlantic
Now, let's go to the severe storms sweeping the southeastern part of the united states. Tornadoes and winds tearing through, on their way to the east coast. They left a big trail of damage. The mid-atlantic is bracing for more storms today. And sam has been tracking all of them at the weather center. Hey, elizabeth. We lined it out for you yesterday. Look at the hot spots from jackson, to memphis, and st. Louis. And the pictures will show you everything blown around and torn down. The fact that we had five reported tornadoes. They have to go in and investigate today, to decide if they're 50-mile-per-hour, 60-mile-per-hour, 80-mile-per-hour, or if that's a twisting damage involved in those areas. That line of storms weakened overnight. By 3:00 in the morning they got calmed down. But they fire up with heat in the afternoon today. From charlotte, to raleigh, to myrtle beach, baltimore, pittsburgh. This is a highly-populated, densely-populated area, rife for some strong thunderstorms.
