Deadly tornadoes strike South as 100 million at risk of severe weather

At least two people have died as a powerful storm system moved across much of the U.S. Monday, spawning tornadoes that knocked out power in several states.

The big picture: Over 100 million people from the southern Plains to the Mid-Atlantic on Monday faced the risk of severe weather, which was expected to continue to hit Southern states through Tuesday, per the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center.


Very large hail, tornadoes (a couple of which may be significant), and intense damaging winds are expected tonight in a corridor from northeast Texas and southeast Oklahoma to the Lower Ohio Valley. https://t.co/o6VyTZ45jY
