A monster storm peppered a 1,500-mile arc with 10 reported tornadoes, grapefruit-sized hail and winds of up to 80 mph Wednesday — and forecasters warned millions of Americans to brace for a second round Thursday. Stretching from Texas up to the Great Lakes and down to North Carolina, the storm system has the potential to be the biggest severe weather event so far this spring, according to The Weather Channel. Hail of up to 4 inches in diameter smashed buildings and cars and high winds tore off roofs and downed trees, as wild weather hit 12 states.
