Storms and tornadoes ravaged the Southeast US on Wednesday, killing two and leaving behind them a trail of demolition before heading towards the Northeast, where hundreds of thousands were left without power.

The massive storm system generated tornadoes in the Southeast and high winds in the North, flipping cars, demolishing homes and businesses, and causing flooding all along the coast.

Parts of Georgia declared a state of emergency as tornadoes left behind a mix of debris and tattered houses. Winds were so powerful that they even managed to flip tractor trailers.

“The sky was swirling,” business owner Theresa Chitwood told CBS. “It sounded like a freight train coming through.”

Adairsville, Ga. resident Kandi Cash described searching the rubble of her grandmothers home, where she salvaged whatever photos and keepsakes she could find after tornadoes demolished the property.

“I’m just picking up pictures,” she told AP. “I’ve found the most important ones, like when my cousin was born and her late daddy, the ones that matter most.”
