Storms leave 200K without power across South
Damaging storms have left more than 200,000 people without power across the southern United States, and forecasters say more are on the way.
BIRMINGHAM (AP) - Damaging storms have left more than 200,000 people without power across the southern United States, and forecasters say more are on the way.
The Storm Prediction Center says wind damage including fallen trees that pulled down power lines and struck buildings happened along a line from Texas to Alabama. A few isolated tornadoes were reported.
More than 70,000 homes and businesses are without power in Arkansas, and more than 30,000 outages each are reported in Texas, Louisiana and Alabama, where crews are out working to remove toppled trees and clear blocked roads.
Forecasters say storms are moving eastward, and more severe weather is possible on Thursday in Alabama and Georgia all the way up the Eastern Seaboard to Pennsylvania. Flooding already is causing travel problems near Philadelphia.
