Today at 4 p.m. EDT Thursday, June 13, 2013, on AccuWeather LIVE we covered the line of severe weather that continues to move eastward with impacts on Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Raleigh. Besides bringing the threats of strong winds, large hail and urban flooding, the strongest storms may spawn tornadoes.

We also discussed this year's hurricane forecast, the history of naming hurricanes and how growing coastal populations could affect the devastation hurricanes cause.
