Update at 8:00 a.m. EDT Thursday: This blog is no longer live, as the severe threat has ended. Detailed reports of the event can be found below.
The most powerful severe storm outbreak of the season so far unleashed fierce winds, violent thunderstorms, large hail, powerful tornadoes and generated massive flooding across more than 20 states over the last five days.
In the wake of the storms, more than 35 people are dead, thousands are without power and countless properties lay demolished on the ground.
While the significant storm threat has ended, flash flooding threats will remain across the mid-Atlantic, particularly in the I-95 corridor from New York City to Washington, D.C., through Thursday.
