Severe storms threaten large swaths of northern and eastern US

Severe weather will cover large swaths of the northern and eastern United States over the weekend, bringing thunderstorms, dangerously high winds, heat waves, large hail, flash flooding, and more, according to weather reports.

Though the central U.S. is likely to face the worst of the storms, multicell and pulse storms will appear in an area extending from the Ohio Valley to the Carolinas, which could bring damaging winds, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Storm Prediction Center said.
