A deadly storm system is threatening millions of Americans as severe weather now bears down on the East Coast and parts of the Midwest.

A line of powerful storms with heavy winds is expected to batter the New Orleans metro area Saturday night into Sunday morning, the National Weather Service said. Flooding has also been reported.
