Southern states brace for floods, possible tornadoes after severe storms hurt 10

- Showers and storms are expected later Thursday in Charlotte.

The rain will taper off Friday afternoon and the weekend should be mostly sunny.

Forecasters warned people across the Deep South to prepare for another onslaught of severe weather Thursday, one day after a line of storms that triggered tornadoes left at least ten people hurt.

More than 8 million people will be at an "enhanced" risk of severe weather, according to the National Weather Service. The greatest threat of tornadoes and large hail will be in northern Mississippi and Alabama, along with parts of Tennessee, northwestern Georgia and southern Kentucky, forecasters say.

Severe thunderstorms are already moving across the lower Mississippi River Valley, bringing hail and damaging winds. Forecasters already have issued a flash flood watch covering much of Georgia through Friday evening.
