Severe Weather Predicted Indiana Kentucky Tennessee, Another round of dangerous weather is on the way for parts of the Midwest and southeast Friday, threatening dozens of tornadoes in areas already reeling from Wednesday’s deadly storms.
The National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting a moderate risk of severe thunderstorms, damaging winds and hail for the Ohio River Valley, Kentucky and Tennessee. It could touch the northern parts of Alabama and Mississippi as well.
“Moderate” risk the second-highest level below “high” risk.
There is a chance tornadoes could touch down in Kentucky, Tennessee, northern Alabama and the Ohio River Valley. A tornado may have been spotted in Athens, AL, about 10:35 a.m. ET Friday.
WAFF-TV has crews on the ground. There could be as many as 50 to 100 tornadoes reported Friday, according to CNN’s weather team.
Some of those tornadoes could be long track tornadoes, which stay on the ground longer and do more damage, according to the NWS. Most at risk for these tornadoes are southern Indiana, central Kentucky and parts of Tennessee.
It was a long track tornado that slammed into Tuscaloosa, AL, killing 43 and injuring 800 on April 27, 2011, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
The NWS said the threat of twisters will increase as the day goes on, but most of the areas hit hard by the Leap Day storms only have a 15 percent chance of seeing tornadoes before Friday afternoon.
The storms come two days after 13 people died in 35 twisters across several states.
Bracing for yet another round of storms, parts of Tennessee are still battered and reeling from Wednesday’s tornado touchdowns in Cumberland and DeKalb counties that killed three.
