A major storm system has been wreaking havoc across the central and eastern parts of the United States, with about 50 million people under severe weather advisories. The National Weather Service has issued warnings for flash floods, long-track tornadoes, and baseball-sized hail, especially targeting the Ohio and Tennessee valleys. The severe weather conditions extend from the Gulf Coast to western Virginia and the Carolinas, posing significant risks throughout Tuesday.

Over 100,000 households in states such as Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee are experiencing power outages, with a squall line causing potential tornado threats across southern Indiana and Kentucky. The storm has caused coast-to-coast impacts since the weekend, including damaging hail across the Midwest and heavy rain leading to infrastructure damage in Southern California. As the storm moved east, its intensity increased, leading to significant damage in Oklahoma, Indiana, and other affected areas.

Further complications arose in Texas, where over 30 vehicles were involved in a pileup due to the storm, highlighting the hazardous travel conditions. Meanwhile, northern Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, and eventually the Northeast are bracing for heavy snow, with forecasts predicting significant accumulation and possible travel disruptions.

This severe weather event underscores the unpredictable nature of storm systems and their wide-ranging impact on the United States, affecting everything from infrastructure to personal safety.
