A major outbreak of severe storms, including tornadoes, is striking parts of the Tennessee and Ohio valleys.
This violent thunderstorms and tornadoes come just days after deadly tornadoes devastated communities in the southern Plains and Southeast. Unfortunately, some of those towns could again be struck by strong storms this week.
Thunderstorms initiated across southeast Oklahoma and western Missouri Tuesday afternoon. The severe weather will continue to race eastward across the Tennessee and Ohio valleys through early Wednesday morning.
Many of the thunderstorms will continue to produce powerful wind gusts, driving downpours and frequent lightning strikes. Some of the storms may produce large hail.
Unfortunately, conditions could produce more tornadoes over the storm-weary region. Just one tornado passing through a populated area can lead to casualties and major destruction.
Powerful storms could also reach as far north as the I-80 corridor, including Toledo, Ohio.
The threat for severe weather won't end there. Later Wednesday, parts of the eastern Tennessee Valley, mid-Atlantic and central Appalachians will be at risk for powerful thunderstorms.
