Severe weather eyes I-95 corridor Monday after storms turned deadly in Indiana, Georgia Sunday 

Millions of people will be under the threat of severe weather along the Interstate 95 corridor from the Northeast to the mid-Atlantic as a cold front sweeps through the region and brings the risk of severe thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday.

NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has highlighted a level 3 out of 5 from North Carolina to southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey, including Philadelphia and Washington. Also, an area from the New York City tri-state area to South Carolina has a level 2 out of 5 on the SPC's thunderstorm risk category scale.

The same system that will produce Monday's severe weather also brought tornadoes to parts of Indiana on Sunday evening.

The twisters were seen ripping through cities like Greenwood, Indiana, lofting debris hundreds of feet into the air. 

In southern Indiana, a home in Martin County was hit by a suspected tornado, killing one of the occupants and injuring the other.

Severe weather also turned deadly in Georgia, where storms knocked down a tree that crushed a man in the northeast part of Atlanta on Sunday night.

Cindy dissipates but could have a resurgence late week

Tropical Storm Cindy dissipated Sunday night as it passed northeast of the Caribbean islands. Cindy formed in the central Atlantic last Thursday on the heels of Tropical Storm Bret, which dissipated over the central Caribbean Sea late Saturday afternoon.

FOX Weather's Hurricane Specialist Bryan Norcross says a large dust plume is now spreading across the Atlantic Ocean, so tropical activity should be suppressed in that ocean basin for a while. However, there is a possibility that Cindy could regenerate later this week as it heads into the North Atlantic.
