Severe storms are heading toward the Pacific Northwest - as forecasters warn of devastating tornadoes and damaging winds on Tuesday night.
Just yesterday, around 10,000 were without power after the torrential weather hit St. Charles Parish with winds of 86 to 110 miles per hour.
And much of the region is now under an extreme weather warning - meaning that the likelihood of dangerous tornados and winds hitting is very high.
The lower Mississippi River Valley areas of Memphis and Bartlett, Tennessee, Jonesboro and Pine Bluff, Arkansas, and Monroe, Louisiana have received a level three out of five enhanced storm risk that will impact more than three million people, according to the Storm Prediction Center.
