Another severe weather outbreak is forecast for Wednesday through Friday this week in the central and southern U.S., in what could be a repeat of last weekend’s savage storms that killed nine people.

“We expect numerous thunderstorms to develop in the Plains, Midwest and South starting Wednesday, spreading eastward Thursday and Friday,” the Weather Channel said.

About 118 million people live where severe storms are possible, AccuWeather warned.

“Some of the same communities devastated by this weekend’s severe weather in the South will be at risk again,” according to AccuWeather meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski.
