Know where to go and what to do should a tornado warning be issued for your area. In addition, the University of Alabama has canceled classes on Wednesday and will cease normal operations at 3 a.m. Do not drive over down power lines and avoid standing water, metal fences, television or cable lines, and other items that may conduct electricity. "We will be concerned about the threat for severe weather and that will include hail, especially high winds, and an isolated tornado threat, very heavy rainfall as the storms move through", said Buresh.

Another risk of potentially severe weather is possible for Rutherford County Wednesday.

Mobile homes are not safe in high winds or tornadoes, he said.

"A few tornadoes likely with a couple intense tornadoes possible", the weather service said.

Walton and surrounding counties are under a tornado watch until 1 p.m., for what is expected to be just the first phase of just a long day of inclement weather.

The Federal Aviation Administration temporarily halted flights to Atlanta's airport because of the storms. Major universities including Alabama and Auburn also are closed, and many churches have called off Wednesday night activities.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed a large portion of the area in a "Slight" risk of severe weather (shown in yellow), with a greater "Enhanced" risk (orange) south of town into central Virginia.

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley said the state of emergency would last until the severe weather subsides.

At 9 p.m., scattered showers will linger and all severe weather threats will move out by 10 p.m.

By far the worst of the storms are expected to impact Georgia and SC today.

Two area school districts - the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools and Camden County Schools - have announced they'll be operating on a two-hour delay Thursday morning because of the anticipated severe weather.
