Violent Storms Sweep U.S., More to Come

The severe weather just won't go away in the Midwest, and forecasters say Friday could be the worst.
All together 100 twisters have been sighted this past week, with 23 reported Thursday.

A thunderstorm dumped heavy rain in parts of Indiana where street workers waded waist-deep water to clear storm drains.

"I ain't never seen nothing like it. I'm from the country. I'm not a city boy and it's just weird to see where you can't get down the streets," Indiana resident Danny Timberman said.

Hail pelted Colorado and sent people scrambling for cover in North Carolina.

On Long Island, a day-long deluge soaked the greens and postponed most of the U.S. Open's opening round.
But tornadoes in the Midwest left behind the most damage.

One of the 23 reported twisters in southeastern Nebraska flattened everything in its path.

"Because that jet stream pattern has been so far south of us, we haven't had those real clashes of hot and cold so often this season. So we're really getting a late start for the severe weather season here in the Midwest," Meteorologist Tracy Butler said.

The worst may be yet to come and three to four weeks later than average.
