A series of powerful storms has killed at least four people and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of homes up and down the East Coast.

From Maryland to Georgia, tornadoes and severe wind gusts ripped down power lines and uprooted trees. Heavy rain on top of already-saturated ground is also causing widespread flooding.

At their peak, the massive storms were spread over 240 miles with wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour.
