OVER 60 million Americans from Atlanta to Philadelphia are at risk of severe weather as strong winds move across the United States.
Monday’s bad weather system will hit the Southeast and Northeast after a tornado killed seven people in Iowa last week.
Cities likely to experience extreme weather include Washington, DC, Baltimore, and Nashville, according to CNN meteorologist Haley Brink.
Weather threats include heavy hail, gusty winds, heavy rain and tornadoes.
Storms, especially in the Ohio River Valley, will bring heavy rain and a possible rain rate of one to two inches per hour.
Areas of Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia are in the floodlights.
Temperatures in the area are currently 20 to 30 degrees higher than average, Fox News reported.
Cold air and snow are expected to follow the storm in parts of northern New England back to the Great Lakes.
The Northwest will then see heavy snowfall and very low temperatures through Tuesday.
This happens after a death tornado kills four people members of the same family on Saturday.
Father-of-three Mike Bolger, 37, was killed in the storm along with his two-year-old son, Owen, and five-year-old daughter.
Two of their neighbors were also killed, according to authorities.
Bolger’s mother-in-law, Melissa Bazley, 63, was also killed when the tornado passed through her home.
Wild weather left a devastating road in Winterset, Iowa, tearing apart many homes.
“This is the worst thing people have seen in a long time,” said Diogenes Ayala, Madison County Emergency Management.
Officials estimate 25-30 homes were destroyed.
In total, seven people died as a result of the storm.
