Tropical Storms – Roundup of Tropical Storms:
There are no current tropical storms.
South Africa – Heavy rains and driving winds forced the evacuation of a Cape Town building which sustained structural damage and left several suburbs without power. Numerous trees were also uprooted, some falling onto parked cars. City council disaster officials and firefighters evacuated as many as 1,000 people from the building in Kruskal Avenue in Bellville after it was damaged by the storm.
USA – Potent thunderstorms have been blamed for one death and left hundreds of thousands of people without power across the southern United States — and fierce winds walloped parts of several states as new storms formed Thursday. Fallen trees ripped down power lines and crashed into buildings along a line from Texas to Alabama overnight and into Thursday morning. Similar damage continued later in the day in parts of Georgia, the Carolinas and southeast Virginia. In Ohio, heavy rains led to landslides and flooded highways.
