Following deadly storms that rattled many communities of the Northeast on Thursday, severe storms are developing and threatening portions of Virginia, North Carolina and the Ohio Valley.
The violent thunderstorms are actually erupting in two separate zones, unlike the long seemingly continuous line of severe thunderstorms that stretched from the Northeast to Oklahoma late Thursday.
Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C., Roanoke, Norfolk and Richmond, Va., Atlanta, Ga., Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Md., Philadelphia, Pa., and Atlantic City, N.J., are among the cities and towns in one threat zone.
The other corridor at risk for severe thunderstorms into this evening include Detroit, Mich., Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio, Louisville, Ky., and Pittsburgh, Pa.
Damaging winds gusts greater than 60 mph, large hail and isolated tornadoes are possible with the strongest storms that erupt.
