Huge storm system leaves path of destruction from Wisconsin to the Carolinas.

Fall's fury is being felt from Wisconsin to East Coast.

At least 12 tornados were reported as part of a massive storm system Tuesday.

In Wisconsin, the National Weather Service says a funnel cloud was on the ground even before
it appeared on radar, ripping the roof off a Case-IH tractor plant.

Another tornado touched down in central Indiana.

Farm buildings were flattened, homes heavily damaged.

Howling winds across the Hoosier State knocked down power lines, toppled trees and even semi-trucks.

High winds across the Great Lakes produced huge waves that topped nine feet on Lake Michigan.

Pounding rain and gale force winds made for a rough day in the Windy City.

Hundreds of flights in Chicago canceled or delayed because of the high winds.

While residents in eastern states brace for the fall storm forecasters call the worst in decades,
folks in Colorado are getting an early taste of Old Man Winter.

Meteorologists at the Weather Channel say this storm is stronger than the infamous
"Edmund Fitzgerald" storm in November of 1975 that sent the huge freighter to the bottom of Lake Superior.
