A tornadic storm is expected to continue to pound the Carolins Carolinas from now through Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
The National Weather Agency is issuing a tornado watch for the Carolines, the most severe possible category for a tornado in the state.
The storm has already produced more than 6,000 fatalities, according the Weather Service, and it’s expected to dump more than 3,000 inches of rain in parts of the Carolinas Southeast.
The storm has also destroyed at least 1,000 homes and damaged at least 17,000 others.
The most recent tornado in Florida saw its worst winds and most intense hail on Monday.
A tornado warning remains in effect for the entire state of Georgia from Monday morning through Tuesday evening.
The National Weather Services forecast shows an expected track through Wednesday morning with the heaviest rainfall likely to be along the Gulf Coast, the forecast says.
The National Hurricane Center said a tornado warning is in effect through Wednesday afternoon for parts of southern Georgia and South Carolina, but that there is little chance of a tornado causing major damage.
A tornado warning will remain in effect until Friday afternoon, when the chance of severe weather is likely to diminish.
