Southern storm creates damage across America


That storm system that generated dozens of tornadoes in the south -- left much of the east coast swamped this morning - from Alabama to New England.

Torrential rain and flooding moved houses off their foundations, cars into ravines, and forced rescue crews to use boats.

From Florida up to New York City the rain came down in buckets! An insane amount of rain. It's crazy, way more than I have ever seen in my entire life. Swollen creeks, flooded roads even this sinkhole in Baltimore. The road just collapsed - watch as this car topples over into the muddy pit below.

In Florida - unthinkable rain.  Some areas got a whopping 26 inches - yes more than two feet! Pensacola was hit with torrential downpours, more than 11 inches of rain fell yesterday. You could see the water keep rising. You're just praying it didn't get all the way in the house. Officials urged drivers to stay off the roads but many didn't listen, like this guy outside Philadelphia.

These are flooded roads in Northern Virginia watch as some drivers still tried to make their way through. It's the worst I've seen in a long time. My car got so wet, it actually affected the electrics. Crews all over the mid-
Atlantic states were busy working to rescue motorists who got stuck in the high waters.

The rain is over and Springlike weather is in the forecast for most of the mid-Atlantic states. But look how fast the high waters are rushing in Washington's Rock Creek. Streams, creeks and rivers all over this area are swollen just like this which means there could still be a threat of more flooding.
