Severe Storms Slamming Deep South, Northeast over Easter Weekend


The severe weather that rumbled across North Texas, the Texas Panhandle, Mississippi and southeastern Kansas mid-week now moves through the Deep South.

Over 4 inches of rain, with hail, is possible in Birmingham, Alabama; Jackson, Mississippi; and Atlanta through Saturday and Sunday.
Forecasters say to expect damaging winds, heavy rain, and threats of tornadoes, particularly in parts of Florida, the Carolinas and Virginia.

Folks in central Arkansas have already been feeling effects of the storm system after record-breaking rain in just a short amount of time led to flooding and creeks overflowing.

Earlier in the week, a Texas couple got the shock of their life, when a massive tree that used to provide shade for their home, fell in the middle of the night.

"It really scared us, it really scared us," said Ana Kiroga, a resident of Houston.

The tree, narrowly missing their home and their neighbor's, just as severe storms ripped through the Houston area Wednesday.

"We're Christians at this house and this is prayers right here – we just remodeled this house right here – we're remodeling and not even a broken window," said Michael Martinez.
All this is happening days after dozens of tornadoes swept from East Texas to Georgia last weekend leaving at least eight dead.
