Back here at home, the other weather headline, the dangerous storms hammering the heartland. 4 million in the storm area. Look at these pictures coming in from South Dakota. The storm clouds rolling in from South Carolina. And the Walmart, taking a direct hit. Aisles of merchandise left out in the open. Six injured. And ginger zee, with the size of the tornado now determined. Oh, my god. This is scary. It is coming right for us. Are you kidding me? Reporter: Tornadoes raking the land from Minnesota to South Dakota. To this one in troy, Alabama. Lightning illuminates the twister as it shreds this Walmart, injuring six shoppers inside. Tonight, we know that tornado was an ef-1. Winds up to 100 mph. Only on the ground for two minutes. 700 yards. Knocking everything off the shelves. Flipping semis in the parking lot. Paul Ackley was in one of them. It was a little spooky at the time. It was really violent last night. Reporter: At least 150 severe storm reports in 24 hours and counting. Let's get right to ginger now. The radar is popping. Just east of the rockies, you see the pink boxes. A severe thunderstorm watch going until 11:00 P.M. Mountain time. And that energy slides east Saturday, you will see hail and the possibility of tornadoes. Damaging winds possible. And Illinois, parts of Missouri and Iowa included. And a large area from Texas, Alabama to Missouri, high temperatures. They had their first 100, and will stay there for a couple of days. Thank you.
