More than a dozen people killed in tornadoes in Alabama and Georgia

First Alert Forecast showers storms late Sunday cool week ahead

Emergency workers were expected to toil into the night on Sunday, pulling bodies and the injured out of the rubble of hundreds of homes.

The sheriff said that number could rise, and people are still reported missing. "It's the most I've seen that I can recall".

At least 14 people were killed after a tornado slammed into the USA state of Alabama and destroyed numerous homes with a death toll that could rise as rescuers sift through the rubble.

Authorities were prioritizing search and rescue efforts on Sunday evening, he said, but were hampered by the dwindling light.

Smith urged residents to stay clear off the roads and the area affected by the storm. "To the families and friends of the victims, and to the injured, God bless you all!"

The storm has knocked down trees in Harris County, Georgia, breaking off power lines. "We're going to be here all night". I think for most of our area, the severe storm threat will remain low, with the bigger concern being rain and continued river flooding. Some patients had been sent to other hospitals, it added.

The National Weather Service confirmed the tornado while surveying damage Saturday north of Abbeville from a severe thunderstorm.

Severe weather unleashed one of numerous possible tornadoes that threatened the Southern United States on Sunday afternoon.

Televised broadcast news footage showed smashed buildings with rooftops blown away, cars overturned and debris everywhere. He didn't have an immediate account of how many were believed missing.

Almost eight years after a tornado outbreak that devastated major cities and small towns alike, Alabama remains wary of severe weather and the menace of tornadoes.

The Lee County coroner said he has requested assistance from the state mortuary response team. Power appeared out to homes and businesses around the community in southeast Alabama.

Emergency services said they are still assessing the damage and injuries.

Lee County Schools announced on Twitter that campuses in the county would be closed on Monday.

However, forecasters said storm activity could peak in the noon to 4 p.m. timeframe.

The National Weather Service on Sunday issued a series of tornado warnings stretching from Phenix City, Alabama, to Macon, Georgia, about 100 miles to the east. "Those without power who rely on electric heat need to find ways to say warm".
