A particularly active early tornado season has left much of the South reeling, as multiple tornadoes have touched down across the region.

The severe storms have killed over 200 and caused massive damage across Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia and Kentucky. The massive tornadoes have ravaged the area, reducing towns like Tuscaloosa to debris.

Some towns have instituted curfews, in an attempt to limit the potential damage from the continuing storms.

The video below is compiled from images taken by the NASA GOES-13 satellite over the past few days, and shows the storm movement across the South and towards the Eastern Coast of the U.S. It's incredible to see the storm clouds form, spread, and swirl over the past two days.
