A storm system that dumped inches of rain in the center of the country could now cause possible flooding problems for the eastern half of the country through this week.
The storms could drop several inches of rain, leading to possible flooding problems for the Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee valleys through the Mid-Atlantic region and up to the northeast.
