Philadelphia Weather: Scattered Severe Storms Possible For Delaware Valley Tonight

"Severe thunderstorms with considerable potential for producing damaging wind gusts and a few tornadoes are expected across much of the southern through mid-Atlantic Coast region, particularly across the Carolinas into southern Virginia late this afternoon and evening", the National Weather Service said Friday.

At least three other people have been killed in the massive thunderstorms that pounded parts of MS and Alabama on Thursday. Homes and small structures were damaged, but no injuries were immediately reported.

A third person was killed in Wattsville, Alabama, late Thursday after a tree fell on a home, the weather service reported. The town of 3,500 is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) east of Jackson. But he said radar readings appear to show a tornado formed in Franklin County, which is south of Roanoke. No significant structural damage has been reported. Two more people were reportedly injured after a power pole fell on two vehicles. The storms have also knocked down trees and power lines.

It's now rumbling through Georgia.

Columbus could start seeing heavy rain, hail, damaging winds and possibly tornadoes as soon as 11 p.m., according to a forecast from the National Weather Service in Peachtree City.

A second wave of tornadoes and thunderstorms to hit the US South and Midwest this week turned deadly yesterday with three people reported killed, as the storms pushed eastward today, officials and media accounts said.

A tornado watch reached from coastal Louisiana into central MS, and more weather alerts are likely. The region includes the Charlotte, North Carolina metro area.

This story was first published on CNN.com, "4 dead as powerful storms barrel through the Deep South". Strong storms again roared across the South on Thursday, topping trees and leaving more than 100,000 people without power across Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas.

On Thursday, "the greatest threat for tornadoes will be along the Gulf Coast states of MS and Alabama", CNN meteorologist Michael Guy said.

The threat Friday shifted to Georgia, where multiple tornado warnings covered parts of northeast Georgia.
