Severe weather tore across several states for the beginning of Father's Day weekend leaving behind paths of damage. Video on social media showed the tornado-warned storms as they quickly moved east. https://twitter.com/kodykinser4k/status/1140033781753139200 Video courtesy Kody Kinser via Twitter Indiana had multiple reports of tornadoes, many areas with storm damage and blocked roads due to strong winds. Courtesy Instagram user @SelCycles Winds gusted beyond 70 miles per hour for some locations. As of 9 p.m. ET Saturday 8 p.m. CT there were nearly 50,000 power outages across the Lower 48 with about half of those reported in the state of Indiana. There were multiple areas of severe weather on Saturday. The northern-most area was near the Canadian border where there were reports of funnel clouds, tornadoes and strong winds across the Dakotas. To the southeast, Iowa was rocked with strong straight-line wind upwards of 75 mph. Then to the east, Indiana was under a tornado threat for several hours Saturday. Finally, big hail fell in Texas and Oklahoma. The severe weather threat is far from over too. On Father's Day Sunday, another round of thunderstorms will pop up from the Northeast states, to the Ohio River Valley, and finally down to Texas and Louisiana. Stay weather aware and weather ready!
