Dozens of National Weather Service offices around the country issued 1,232 severe weather warnings as dangerous storms raked the eastern two-thirds of the United States. The map beautifully illustrates where the worst outbreaks occurred, as well as the general southwest-to-northeast path that the severe storms took.

Blue boxes are severe thunderstorm warnings, red boxes are tornado warnings, green boxes are flash flood warnings, and teal boxes are special marine warnings.

No severe thunderstorms are expected over the next couple of days.
