At least four people died in Houston after storms rattled the city on Thursday. A new rash of storms is set to rumble across the U.S. Gulf Coast and beyond into the weekend. Multiple rounds of torrential rain and the threat of severe weather will be a continuous presence in the Southeast over the weekend. These risks will then move back into the central portions of the nation to start the new work week. Here is a deeper look at the projected timing and impacts of these weather systems.

Powerful Storm in Houston Leaves Four Dead

A volatile storm system has left at least four people dead in Houston. The storm brought down trees and power lines and shattered windows in buildings in downtown Houston when it roared through the area late Thursday and into early Friday. Almost 1 million customers are without power after the system that struck parts of Texas and Louisiana with a vengeance.

At least two of the deaths were blamed on fallen trees. Another fatality was attributed to a toppled construction crane. Houston Mayor John Whitmire confirmed that winds hit speeds of 100 mph.
