Transcript for Dangerous Weather: Mother Nature at Work on Labor Day
We're going to turn to the other developing headline tonight, millions of Americans driving home after the holiday weekend back to work and school. But first driving through horrific weather. Look at this tonight, golf ball sized hail in Kansas leaving a lot of damage in its wake. There was this, a shelf cloud over parts of Iowa, 80 miles per hour winds right behind it. Take a look at the weather wall tonight, every dot up there on that map a burst of severe weather reported on this labor day weekend. More than 180 reports of severe weather. Tonight there is more on the way. Reported tornados touching down today and millions in the storm zone. Ginger zee tracking it all. Reporter: An inch of rain filling the streets outside Grand Rapids. In Worcester, Massachusetts. I heard crash. I thought it was hail and then boom, boom, boom, crack, crack, crack. Reporter: An ef-0 tornados ripping a path just under two miles long. It's incredible. You don't expect to have tornados in Worcester. I mean, we don't live in Kansas. Reporter: It's actually the sixth tornado reported in Massachusetts this year. But she's right, it's not Kansas. This one, the hail raining down, growing to golf ball sized. Those sinister shelf clouds creeping across the planes. Inside gusts up to 80 miles per hour. At least five people from Kansas to New York City struck by lightning. Stunning pictures this labor day weekend. Ginger what are you watching tonight? A severe thunderstorm watch in place for parts of Oklahoma and Kansas. Let me take you straight to the map. Right through Missouri into southern Illinois, that's the threat area tonight. That same cold front that produced reported tornados in Michigan will sink to the southeast. We're watching for those damaging winds, flash floods and large hail. Late afternoon and evening when everyone is getting back from their commute. Finally tropical depression looks like it will become tropical storm dolly going to about 200 miles south of Brownsville. If this becomes dolly it is the D. In the alphabet of the hurricane season. The last time we waited this long for D. Was 1994.
