On Thursday evening, giant tornadoes swept through Louisiana, Texas and other southern states during a powerful storm. Whirlwinds felled trees and destroyed houses. In parts of Texas and Louisiana, hurricane winds left 300,000 people without power. Pumping stations for water supply have also been shut down.

More than 30 million US residents have been alerted to the tornado due to the risk of a "regional outbreak of severe weather". Several more powerful storm waves may occur in the region. The elements may also affect residents of Arkansas and Oklahoma.

North of Dallas, the wind knocked down trees, overturned 4 18-wheelers along Highway 75, and blew the roof off a grocery store. Several people were injured. Their houses are reported to have collapsed. Fortunately, there were no casualties.

Meteorologists warn of squall meter gusts up to 112 km/h, waterspouts and large hail the size of an apple. Due to weather conditions, a number of schools in northern Texas have suspended classes. About 400 flights have also been canceled in the region. Due to bad weather, air and road communications are seriously complicated. Roads in Greenville, Texas were blocked with bricks from storm-damaged buildings. In Louisiana, a tornado swept right past the State University.

Local authorities recommend that residents stock up on essential goods and not go out unnecessarily. People were warned that if the sirens were turned on, the wind speed was equal to a weak tornado. That is, you need to stay in shelters and do not come close to the windows. Forecasters say the storm will continue moving east, threatening bad weather in the Tennessee and Ohio river valleys. In all likelihood, snow will fall in eastern New England and the Great Lakes.

In the meantime, it will cover California. The storm caused heavy snowfall in the state. The height of the snow covers reaches 2 meters. 52,000 homes and businesses were left without electricity. Heavy snowfalls locked people in their homes and made roads impassable. In California, they are not used to such weather conditions, so the buildings are not adapted to such elements. Roofs are caved in from snowfall.

California Governor Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency in 13 counties, including Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and San Bernardino. He sent the National Guard to help the residents. However, meteorologists note some pluses in the current situation. For example, an unexpected snowfall was able to reduce, and in some areas completely eliminate the drought.
