Another round of powerful storms is barreling across parts of the South and Midwest to interior Northeast. The storms will bring the risk of flash flooding, damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes.
"Severe thunderstorms, some of which will be capable of producing tornadoes, will continue to fire up this afternoon from much of Ohio through central Kentucky, central Tennessee and northern parts of Alabama," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.
The greatest threat for tornadoes lies from near Bowling Green, Kentucky through Cleveland, Ohio. In addition, any of the storms will be capable of producing damaging wind gusts to 70 mph and hail to the size of golf balls.
