A new weather system stretching from the Midwest to the Mid-Atlantic is bringing tornadoes, strong winds and rain to much of the country.
In Alabama, high winds tossed semi-trailers around like toys, overturned trucks and damaged homes and apartments.
In Tennessee a high school gym in Gainesboro was damaged overnight.
A Wisconsin barn complex was destroyed and this system also spawned tornadoes in the Midwest.
((SOUNDBITE)) TOM BARGER, STORM WITNESS SAYING:
"We laid on our stomachs and held onto a metal gate. Before long the building was completely gone that was on top of us."
Thunderstorms and more tornadoes are possible Friday from the Gulf Coast to Maine.
