Tornado Threat Looms Large in Storm-Rattled Midwest and South

• By KEVIN DOLAK, KATIE KINDELAN, CATHERINE COLE and
 Stronger twisters and extreme weather are expected today to again hit the areas of the Midwest and South rattled earlier this week by 33 confirmed tornadoes that left 13 people dead.

A large area of the country stretching from the Ohio Valley into the deep South was currently under threat of severe weather early this morning. Thursday was a relatively quiet day for severe weather in the area, with only eight reports of damaging winds and/or severe hail, all reported in parts of Alabama and Georgia.

Though it was relatively quiet overnight, the first storms could pop up around daybreak in the St. Louis area, according to Rich Thompson, lead forecaster with the National Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla.
