All right, the wind and the rain are slowing down; now, it's time to start cleaning up. That is what is happening all over the United States after this week's tremendous storms. Maybe your town got hit by this severe weather. It is not alone. Check out this map of the United States. If you start over in New York on the East Coast, you go to Wisconsin in the Midwest, then down the Gulf1 Coast. There was damage across parts of that entire area. Three states -- Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky -- seemed to get the worst of this. And besides the physical damage, hundreds of flights were canceled or delayed over the past couple days. John Roberts wraps up some of the impact of these storms.

It's that rare of an event.

Everyone has a storm they'll talk about for the rest of their lives. For many folks from the Dakotas down through the south, this was it, their hurricane, their nor'easter. It even had a name: the "Chi-clone."

It sounds just like a train, like they say it does. And as fast as it came is as fast as it went.

A historic storm stretching a staggering 1,200 miles from north to south that had it all: hurricane-force winds, monsoon-like rain, blizzard2 warnings and tornadoes3 reported in at least seven states. This surveillance camera kept rolling inside one possible twister in Indiana as the tin roof came off a barn and a boat went airborne. Trees snapped and crushed cars in Kentucky. A rogue4 gust5 of wind tipped over a semi and tore off its roof in Michigan. And in Ohio, someone came home to find only half their house was there.

We were at work, got a phone call that you better get out to your house, the roof's gone off of it. And I said, "Yeah, right."

Now, the dangerous storm is moving on. But thousands of fliers aren't, as grounded airlines struggle to catch up

We have to leave today.
