75 million Americans under threat of severe weather – CNN.com


Tupelo, Mississippi (CNN) — The scope is staggering. Some 75 million Americans are under threat of severe weather on Tuesday.

People from the Great Lakes to the Gulf Coast, and from the Midwest to the East Coast, are advised to keep their eyes to the sky and their ears to the radio. That’s a third of the country.

The greatest risk will again be in the Deep South, with Mississippi and Alabama in the bull’s-eye for the worst of the storms.

The first two days of this powerful spring storm system, which is expected to rage into Wednesday, claimed 29 lives in six states.

Eight people died in Mississippi on Monday, the state emergency management office said. Few additional details were immediately available.

In Tupelo, employees at a Steak Escape restaurant survived by huddling in the bathroom as the storm destroyed the building around them, Mayor Jason Shelton told CNN’s “New Day.”
