Storm Moves to Eastern United States and Canada: Photos, Videos
The Storms Continue to Wreak Havoc in the United States and Canada, Canceling Flights and Bringing High Winds and Even Snow
The storms in the United States are affecting residents from the southern states to Delaware and people in most of Ontario should also expect strong winds and rain.
A tornado warning has been issued for counties in West Georgia, including the city of Atlanta, and residents in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri and Illinois awoke to tornado warnings earlier on Wednesday.
Residents in the Upper Midwest and sections of the Ohio Valley should expect strong winds, while those in North Dakota and Minnesota are warned about possible winter weather, including heavy snow.
The storm system on Tuesday spawned at least 24 possible tornadoes and just as many could be predicted for today.
Most of Ontario should expect strong winds on Wednesday and residents should ready themselves for possible damage from the weather system.
Weather warnings have been issued for York, Barrie, Hamilton and Toronto.
George Kournouis, the host of "Angry Planet" says Ontario's strong winds have been caused by a "weather bomb."
"A weather bomb is not actually a type of weather; it is a description of how deep an area of low pressure strengthens," Kournouis told CTV's Canada AM.
Cleaning Up the Mess
Those living in regions such as Tennessee, Alabama, Indiana and Wisconsin will be clearing up the mess left behind today and some areas experienced extensive damage.
Six tornadoes were confirmed in Indiana, with one in Wisconsin and three in Ohio.In North Carolina, three homes were destroyed by a possible tornado, with five homes damaged and eleven people were hurt; one with life-threatening injuries.
Wind, rather than rain, ended up being the greatest danger from the system, with gusts exceeding 70 mph in some places. The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center said there were 268 reports of wind damage Tuesday.
The high winds are affecting flights out of Atlanta and also individual airlines, as Delta has canceled 95 flight so far.
