The powerful storms that pounded the South will continue Wednesday, a day after tornadoes ripped through several states
The dangerous thunderstorms that packed house shaking winds and left two people dead on Christmas were expected to move eastward Wednesday hitting Georgia, the Carolinas, Florida and much of the Eastern seaboard, the National Weather Service said.
Wednesday's expected severe storms are "capable of producing more widespread damaging wind gusts and have the potential for tornadoes," the weather service said.
Many in the South know all too well about tornadoes, as a slew of them turned Christmas into a fright fest.
David Saraceno spotted something ominous forming Tuesday as he sped down I-165 in Mobile County in Alabama. He was traveling with his wife and 1-year-old daughter to visit family when he saw the twister on the side of the road. His wife videotaped it.
"It looked like it was about two miles away from us," said Saraceno. "I put the pedal to the floor to try and get out of harm's way but it seemed to be getting closer and closer."
Panicked, Saraceno got off the interstate near the town of Chickasaw, drove in a different direction and then turned around to go home. He couldn't go see family in that weather.FULL STORY
