(INDIANAPOLIS) - Meteorologists are warning that a gigantic line of powerful thunderstorms is likely to threaten one in five Americans.

The storm system packing tree-toppling winds is forecast to rumble later today from Iowa to Maryland.

All of central Indiana is under a moderate risk of severe storms later Wednesday and overnight into Thursday morning. Areas north of Kokomo are under a high risk.

For Indianapolis, the storms could bring strong straight-line winds, large hail and possible isolated tornadoes.

Bill Bunting, operations chief at the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center, says the storms are likely to produce tornadoes, dangerous lightning and large hail. Power outages are likely, to be followed by oppressive heat. Cities at risk include Chicago, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Detroit, Baltimore, Washington, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Ohio, and Louisville, Ky.

Indianapolis Power and Light Co. has a 1:00 pm meeting to finalize storm preparations and call-outs.
