Forecasters say severe weather moving to Carolinas

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - The National Weather Service says the western Carolinas will see some of the severe thunderstorms that have been moving across the deep South.

Forecasters said the storms will move into the central and southwestern mountains of North Carolina and South Carolina's Upstate region late Saturday and could produce tornadoes.

The storms will continue to be dangerous as the line of storms passes across both states overnight and into Sunday morning.

The National Weather Service said several tornadoes were reported in Mississippi with damage to dozens of homes.

In Tennessee, hail and heavy downpours caused marathon runners to take cover in Nashville and power outages in Memphis.
