VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

FROM THE AIR ... THE DAMAGE TO ADAIRSVILLE, GEORGIA IS CLEAR ... IT IS BELIEVED A TORNADO LEFT THIS BEHIND.

SPLINTERED STRUCTURES ... TOSSED BUILDINGS.

ALL CALLING CARDS OF A STORM SYSTEM MOVING FROM THE SOUTHEAST TOWARD THE NORTHEAST ... LEAVING AT LEAST TWO PEOPLE DEAD. PLUNGING TEMPERATURES ... REPLACING UNSEASONABLY WARM AIR FROM THE DAY BEFORE.

THE MIDWEST AND SOUTH SAW TORNADOES ... FARTHER EAST, HEAVY RAINS IN PLACES LIKE NORTH CAROLINA, SENDING RIVERS OVER THEIR BANKS.

IN KENTUCKY ... THE MENACE WAS THE WINDS ... SCATTERING POSESSIONS FAR AND WIDE FROM THIS STORAGE UNIT.

SOT: "It's all out in the fields. Some of the metals, the wood, some people's belongings are out here too."

FARTHER EAST ... HIGH WATER AND POWER OUTAGES. THE VAST STORM ... NOW BUT A MEMORY ON WEATHER MAPS, MOVING UP AND OUT THROUGH MAINE.
