The severe storms that killed six people and caused travel delays in the Southern U.S. on Tuesday are now headed for the Northeast. Severe storms headed for the region bring new risk of tornados in the Coastal Carolinas and heavy snow fall in the Ohio Valley. Winter storm warnings have been issued in Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. Forecasts indicate the weather system dump over a foot of snow on northern New England by Sunday. Severe thunderstorm and heavy rainfall is expected from southeast Virginia to Florida. An outbreak of tornadoes on Christmas Day left damage across the Deep South and over 100,000 customers were left without power in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama.
