Tornado watches remain in effect for parts of the Carolinas and Virginia Friday morning, as a severe spring storm makes its way east after causing extensive damage in the Midwest and Southeast and killing three people.

The storm system stretched from Texas to New York Thursday, dumping snow in the north central region of the US, and causing flooding and tornadoes in areas of Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. Thousands of people are still without power in Minnesota, South Dakota, Missouri, and Arkansas after the storm swept through those states Wednesday.
