In the meantime, to the storm system on the move at this hour, after two systems combine. The system now as one barrelling up the east coast, just as millions travel for Christmas. Dangerous driving, delays at major airports are very likely. Two confirmed tornadoes already in Florida from this today. Damaging this home in Polk county. Flooding in Lakeland, Florida. That rain now moving north. Flood watches from Florida all the way up to Maine. Blinding rain for drivers. We have the new track and the timing for you tonight, and ABC's Victor Oquendo with this. Reporter: Tonight, tornado sirens warning families to take cover, as millions hit the road for the holidays. In manatee county, Florida, a confirmed ef-0 tornado. As it got lighter, we've seen the devastation. All I can say is, thank god we're okay. Reporter: South of Orlando, one person was injured after another confirmed tornado tore through this home, collapsing part of the roof. Rain falling two inches an hour in spots.

Looking here, along that low, the flood watches that are in effect from Florida and Georgia, all the way up to Maine. Interstate 95, so many people will be traveling that, and that's going to be a mess, especially by tomorrow morning. Because we've got the light stuff now with the warm front, but really, there will be three rounds. That's 7:00 A.M. You're looking at. Philadelphia, very wet. We could seal two to four inches of rain in pockets. Up to Boston. And then another low comes in, a really wet and windy, don't forget that, gusts up to 45 miles per hour. Ginger, thank you.
