A terrible storm moves to the west of the USA: floods and tornadoes await Americans
States in the western United States are on standby before the storm. The storm, previously raging in the south of the country, is now moving west. Writes about this ABC News.
Part of the same cold front that brought severe weather on the weekend, January 11-12, concentrated in the south. In South Carolina, there was a tornado with a wind speed of 90 mph (144,8 km / h).
Also, this storm caused a flash flood in the south of the country, and 6 states from Louisiana to Georgia are in a state of flood preparedness.
Precipitation up to 14 inches (4 cm) is possible on January 10,16, and floods are expected by the end of the day.
In the West, there is heavy wet snow, which causes riots on the roads around Seattle (Washington) with accidents and road closures at night.
