NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – On Sunday April 15th, 2018 a line of strong storms at one point stretched from the Florida Straits below the Florida Keys all the way up the East Coast and into Ohio.

GPM is a joint mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA.

Many of the storms were strong with wide spread reports of wind damage from north Florida up through the Carolinas and into central Virginia.
