Flood Watches as New Storm Targets West Coast of US

A major storm system moving through the central and southern U.S. delivered more than two dozen tornadoes, flooding and heavy snow throughout this past weekend.

On Saturday  1st December, at least 22 tornadoes were reported in Illinois, and two were reported on Sunday in Georgia, which also saw almost a foot of rain over the weekend, leading to flooding. Parts of Florida saw 10 inches of rain from the same storm.

Parts of the Rockies and into the upper Midwest saw at least a foot of snow during that same period.

That system is moving through the East Coast this morning, with the Southeast again on the lookout for potential flooding as the Great Lakes and Northeast may see more snow.

Flood watches already have been issued this morning in Florida and in Georgia. Later this afternoon, severe storms packing hail and tornadoes are expected in northern and central Florida.
