Transcript for Tornadoes, Hail Pummel the Midwest, South
Right to the breaking situation right now across the south. Tornado watches and warnings still up this morning after a scary night for millions. Ginger zee is in the middle of the storm stone in Little Rock. Good morning, ginger. Hey, good morning, George. You know that storm, the line of storms blasted through here just hours ago and I want to take you live right now to one of the pictures from Texas. Not too far where more than 250 severe weather reports looked like that after the storms moved through. Just wild pictures coming in and the radar this morning that is moving through and not done. This whole thing still has a whole lot of energy with it. Tornado watches and warnings still in place, severe thunderstorm watches all the way from Kentucky to Texas. From Texas to Missouri. Tornadoes. There's a basement in here. Reporter: At least eight reported twisters. This was the scene outside Mckinney, Texas, just moments after a suspected tornado ripped through homes and pulverized tree, a family near farmersville had to be rescued from tear demolished home. Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Reporter: In Denton, Texas, listen to this frightening scene inside a Walmart. Oh, my god. Oh, my god. The ceiling. Oh, my god. Let's go. Reporter: As hail the size of softballs ripped through the store's skylights. Oh! Oh, my god. Oh! Reporter: People panicking hiding under shelves. Go this way. He wants us to go this way. Reporter: Running for their lives, an aerial view capturing the damage. The cars in the parking lot didn't stand a chance. Shattered glass everywhere. I don't even know what to do with the glass. Do I just sweep it off. Reporter: In depthen the hail in this home raining down from the roof and piling up there on the front porch and take a look at this. An ominous backdrop for a minor league baseball game in Frisco, Texas. And this was the scene outside St. Louis, Missouri, after an ef-1 tornado ripped through a suburban neighborhood splintering tree, demolishing cars. So southern great Lakes all the way to the gulf of Mexico today, we do have a severe weather risk. I want to show you on the map who has to be looking out for hail, damaging winds and of course an isolated tornado could happen in all of the yellow, that would be the chance for thunderstorms and that does go into the northeast quite unsettled and behind this let me tell you we have dropped some 8 degrees in just the last four hours. So much more to come on the cold behind this storm in your nation's weather, Amy.
