Unstoppable weather forces are creating catastrophes for millions of Americans.
Avalanches, raging floods, whiteouts and other wild unpredictable weather is crippling communities across America.
In Utah, a massive avalanche caused by road crews took out everything in its path and shut down several mountain roads.
Whiteout conditions spawned treacherous driving conditions in Colorado.
Drivers could barely see a car 15 feet in front of them so 50 miles of Interstate 70, a main artery for traveling across the state, was shut down.
High winds and heavy snow have been so dangerous even ski resorts had to shut down.
In Washington State, roads turning to rivers and floodwaters engulfed entire communities.
And in Oregon, heavy rains and warmer temperatures melted sitting snow, triggering dangerous and destructive fast-moving floodwaters.
Severe weather left widespread damage in South Carolina.
The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for several counties throughout the state Thursday night.
There were reports of damage near downtown Spartanburg from a possible tornado.
Trees and power lines were knocked down, roads were blocked and gas lines and other structures were damaged.
Police asked residents to stay in their homes until power lines and trees are cleared from the roadways.
And in Georgia and North Carolina, both Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport and Charlotte Douglas International Airport had to issue ground stops because of severe weather including the threat of tornadoes.
