More than 450,000 customers in the Southeast are without power due to severe weather

Over 20 million people are currently on winter alert from Georgia to New England as strong but fast-moving storms hit the regions.

The heaviest snow is expected to fall over parts of the southern Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic states, including Washington, DC and Baltimore.

Washington expects 5 to 8 inches of accumulation, which will make this the heaviest snow in the district since January 2019.

Snowfall speeds of more than 2 to 3 inches per hour are possible, and visibility sometimes drops to less than a quarter mile this morning.

Along with dangerous winter weather, over 1.5 million people are under a tornado guard along coastal sections of the Carolinas, where an isolated tornado is possible through the morning hours.

Strong winds are also blowing power across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic Seas with wind gusts from Florida to Virginia. Flood guards and coastal floods stretch from the Carolinas to New England.
