Deadly Storms Push Through Several States

It has been a dangerous and deadly weekend across much of the country as a massive storm system spawned tornadoes in several states, and forecasters warn the violent weather could continue through next week.

So far, some of the worst damage has been just outside of Little Rock, where a tornado more than a mile wide tossed homes and businesses and left a trail of debris.

The system turned deadly in Northeast Oklahoma, where at least two people are dead.

While in Odessa, Missouri, the severe winds rolled this tractor trailer, pulled-up trees and pushed overpower lines. Hundreds are still without power.

Near Kansas City, another truck was turned on it's side and the roof was peeled off of this storage complex.

Sunday's storms come just two days after a tornado ripped through Eastern North Carolina on Friday killing an infant and damaging more than 200 homes and businesses.

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory says, “This was massive destruction that hit a lot of neighborhoods in North Carolina within a very short period of time."

Forecasters warn this slow moving system could produce more violent weather over the next four days.

Dr. Greg Forbes with the Weather Channel says, “We've got a very dangerous storm system it looks like for the next few days across parts of the Mississippi Valley and deep south."

Atmospheric conditions just right for producing deadly storms, millions of residents in the strike zone are being urged to prepare, and keep a close eye on the skies.
