The United States is about to & # 39; unknown territory & # 39; experts say, as the country is about to break an unfavorable record of tornado activities this week, as more warnings are coming from the Great Plains on the east coast.
The deadly wave of the weather has already killed one and injured hundreds more, but the slurry of volatile weather shows no signs of letting go in the short term.
On Monday, the US had its current record of 11 consecutive days linked to at least eight tornadoes on each of those days, said Patrick Marsh, meteorologist warning coordinator for the federal Storm Prediction Center.
Provinces in Oklahoma, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia have already been plagued by the barrage of gusts and powerful storms, but now residents of New Jersey and New York City have been told to brace themselves for impact.
& # 39; We are flirting in unfamiliar territory & # 39 ;, said Dr. James Marsh of the Federal Storm Forecast Center about the prospect that the storm would come on an unprecedented twelfth day.
& # 39; Normally you would see a break of a day or two between these long stretches, but we don't get that now. & # 39;

The National Weather Service received more than a dozen reports from tornadoes on Tuesday evening, officials said, suggesting that the record for consecutive days could be broken.
The reports follow 53 recruiting tornadoes on Monday in eight states, while the waves of heavy weather swept across the middle section of the nation.
So far, one person has been killed and more than 130 others injured.
An overview of storm reports posted online by NOAA & # 39; s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, shows that 14 suspected tornadoes arrived in Indiana, 10 in Colorado and nine in Ohio.
Six suspected tornado's were reported in Iowa, five in Nebraska, four in Illinois, three in Minnesota, while a suspect tornado was reported in Idaho in the West.
Every province in Oklahoma remains in a state of emergency.
Ohio officials said earlier Tuesday that several & # 39; rapid-fire & # 39; tornado & five million people left without power in the state alone.
Authorities also confirmed a death in Celina, Ohio, about 75 miles northwest of Dayton.
The mayor of the city, Jeffrey Hazel, said that 81-year-old Melvin Dale Hanna died when a Chevrolet Station Wagon was blown into his house during his sleep.
Hanna & # 39; s neighbor, Wendy Knapke, said she was watching as the vehicle was picked up by the tornado, flying over her house and bumping into the back of Hannah & # 39; s house.
Recently widowed, Hanna lived alone and his body was discovered in his bedroom. He was described as & # 39; an incredible father and incredible man & # 39; the Columbus shipment.
Authorities said the most serious damage was reported in Celina. Hazel said there are & # 39; areas that really resemble war area & # 39; in the city with around 10,000 people.
Weather officials said an EF3 tornado hit Celina, but the speed is still being investigated.
Celina Fire Chief, Douglas Wolters, said no fewer than 90 homes were damaged by the tornadoes that were beaten by the region. Wolters estimates that 40 of the houses have suffered considerable damage and that some of their bases have been beaten.
Most people stay with family or friends, but some went to a shelter in nearby Coldwater.
A Tornado watch was issued in four states after 53 twisters hit each other in the Midwest, one dead and more than 130 others injured, because every province in Oklahoma is in a state of emergency.

Since 2012, the tornado figures have brought the United States to rest, with counts that follow on or below the average every year and meteorologists who are still working to find out why.
& # 39; Many people try to answer that, but there is no definitive answer, & # 39; said Marsh.
The recent rise in tornado activity in the last two weeks was due to high pressure across the southeast and an unusually cold trough over the Rockies that forced warm, moist air in the central US to repeated heavy thunderstorms and periodic whirlwinds.
Scientists also say that climate change is responsible for more intense and frequent extreme weather, such as storms, droughts, floods and fires, but without extensive study they cannot link a single weather to the changing climate.
& # 39; Neither one of these large systems – the high above the southeast or the trough over the Rockies – shows signs of emotion, & # 39; said Marsh. & # 39; It's a bit unusual for them to be entrenched so late in the season. & # 39;
