ORLANDO, Fla.- – It was just last week, Easter Sunday, when tornadoes and severe weather ripped through the heart of the Deep South. One week later, the threat for more tornadoes and severe weather is elevated again.

The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted many of the same areas that were under the gun last weekend for severe weather in a "Moderate Risk.” That is 4/5 on their severe weather scale. Tornadoes, damaging wind and hail are once again all threats.

The Easter Sunday outbreak produced nearly 180 tornadoes. The red dots represent tornado reports. The blue dots represent wind damage. Hail reports are marked by green dots.
