Several reported tornadoes reported in the midwest. Rooftops ripped from homes. Trucks flipped on to their sides. And torrential downpours causing flash floods in Texas. Dumping almost nine inches of rain in four hours. In Louisiana, an estimated 60,000 homes have been damaged. Rob Marciano looks at the damage. Reporter: Tonight, at least nine tornadoes reported from Michigan to Kentucky. Now, if that's not a tornado I don't know what is. Reporter: What looks a twister in Delaware, Ohio, appearing right in front of this highway. And a confirmed tornado outside Grand Rapids, Michigan, with winds to 90 miles per hour and the same system pounding down rain and gusts tossing cars and slamming trees into houses and even ripping off this roof. I could hear the trees snap. And the trees all around started snapping. You could just hear them. Reporter: Over in floresville, Texas, just outside San Antonio, overnight rains coming down. Nine inches in just four hours. Torrential rain wreaking havoc in nearby zapata where firefighter Jason delattre rescued a man trapped in his car. He had water up to his neck. He was there for 30 minutes trying to kick out the window. Reporter: Meanwhile residents across south Louisiana still picking up the damage a week after floods damaged parts of that state. Officials now saying an estimated 60,000 homes are damaged. Rob, we're tracking some weather on the east coast tonight? It's raining in New York City. This is the same system that brought the severe weather in the midwest. Now the front is sliding through the I-95 corridor, with rain and thunderstorms and gusty winds. The heavier stuff across the del Marva peninsula. This will end as we go through the evening, and cooler air behind that. But heavy rain in south Texas, 6 to 9 inches of rain in some spots. And there are flash flood watches as the storms roll off of the gulf of Mexico. Meanwhile, finally, some cooler weather in the pacific northwest, but difficult conditions for firefighters there with the wind. Over two dozen fires burning in the west tonight.
