Storms unleash tornadoes in United States east, record snow in Midwest

James Schoenhard of Schoenhard Lawn Care plowed sidewalks in Sioux Falls S.D. on Saturday

At least eleven tornadoes struck parts of Arkansas in severe storms Friday afternoon through Saturday morning, the National Weather Service said.

Mother Nature brought 18 tornadoes in five states over the weekend, along with heavy snow in the upper midwest, leaving hundres of thousands without power.

The weather service also plans to investigate reports of tornadolike damage on the storm's path through Danville and Pittsylvania County.

The tornadoes and storms caused significant damage on Greensboro's east side and in pockets of northeast Rockingham County.

The National Weather Service said Monday tornadoes touched down in the towns of Lexington and Irmo, west and northwest of Columbia.

There were several reports by emergency personnel along the way reporting they spotted a tornado so the NWS is fairly confident that that is what they will find through their surveying today.

Guilford County Schools Superintendent Sharon Contreras told a news conference Monday that three schools severely damaged by Sunday's storm will be relocating its classes. No serious injuries were reported in those storms.

Early Monday, winds will get up to 25 miles per hour. An EF2 tornado would do considerable damage like roofs turn off well-constructed homes, mobile homes completely destroyed, large trees snapped or uprooted and cars lifted off the ground.

More than 50,000 customers are without electricity after storms swept through North and SC, with at least one person dead. The biggest problems were in Guilford and Mecklenburg counties.

Duke had about 2,300 customers without service in SC.

South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. had about 3,200 customers without service.
