Severe Storms to Threaten Damage in the South

Storms crossing the nation after pummeling California and other states of the West will bring nasty weather eastward with them during the middle to latter part of the week.

Severe storms will hit the Gulf Coast and the Southeast Wednesday night into Thursday, threatening lives and property.

The biggest threats will likely be blinding downpours and flash flooding, but gusty winds above 60 mph could cause damage like power outages and downed trees. Isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

The western to central Gulf Coast will be dealing with stormy weather on Wednesday afternoon into the night. Alabama, Georgia and northern Florida will be under the gun on Thursday.
