( – A string of severe storms moved from mainly Louisiana to the Carolinas between Tuesday and Wednesday, which proved fatal in some cases as damaging winds and tornadoes struck.

So far 25 tornadoes hit from Texas to the Carolinas. One of those supercells travelled from Louisiana, eastward to the South Carolina coast. This was a long tracking supercell, but a long track tornado did not form from it. It dropped tornadoes along the path, none of them through most, or the entire length.

A similar system will try again for the Southeastern United States next week, stay tuned .
