CAMP SPRINGS, Md. (AP) — Another round of storms is heading into the same area of the mid-Atlantic that was devastated Friday evening. At the National Forecast Desk in Camp Springs, Maryland, forecast Bob Oravec (OR'-ah-vek) says these storms do not appear to be as strong as the earlier assault, but could cause additional power outages and delay restoration efforts already underway.

A severe thunderstorm watch is posted for much of Virginia, West Virginia and Southeastern Kentucky as the storms push through.

In the meantime, Oravec says the Eastern part of the country will get no break this week from the heat, and that means more storms are likely as the cycle of hot weather remains unbroken.

Sound: 12:32 aed
