The storm system moved swiftly up the eastern seaboard Wednesday, hitting Georgia, Alabama, both Carolinas and Virginia. Two additional lives were lost in Virginia, the Associated Press reported.  

The storm system uprooted trees and brought mayhem in a march of destruction.

"It is a jumbled mess," Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards told NBC. "These travel trailers were picked up, moved a considerable distance and really blown apart, torn apart. There are heavy-duty F350 pickup trucks back there that were just mangled."

On the ground, though, the photos said so much more.
