Winter storm updates
Tornadoes damage homes across the Southern Plains, while heavy snow impacts the Northeast.
Homes were destroyed and at least a dozen people were injured after tornadoes and high winds hit the Southern Plains late Sunday and early Monday.
Tornadoes were also spotted in Oklahoma and Kansas.
The NWS has issued a Tornado Watch for Southeast Oklahoma and far western West Virginia.
In Michigan, over 100,000 people are still without power after a severe ice storm hit the area last week.
The National Weather Service noted that heavy snow will continue to impact parts of the Northeast through Tuesday.
Repeated rounds of heavy snow and strong winds are expected to create extremely dangerous travel conditions across the Sierra Nevada.
According to the NWS, “a series of winter storm systems will continue to impact the West Coast through Wednesday with the final storm in the series pushing over the Southwest U.S. Wednesday into Thursday.”
