Severe storms pounded Nebraska and parts of the central U.S. on Tuesday. There were unconfirmed reports of several tornado touch downs, mostly in Nebrasksa, but also in Iowa and Wyoming. Strong winds and hail the size of baseballs caused widespread damage north of Omaha. That's where the severe weather halted flights for hours and flash floods closed down city streets. Weather forecasters call this a "deracho", a long-lasting, wide line of intense thunderstorms that produce dangerous winds. On Wednesday these storms will be on the move. They're expected to hit eastern Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and southern Ohio as well as parts of Tennessee and West Virginia.
