Tornadoes reported in Wakulla, Gadsden counties, damage reported in Cairo

First Alert Forecast showers storms late Sunday cool week ahead

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.

On Twitter, U.S. President Donald Trump urged residents of Alabama and other areas affected by the storms to be "careful and safe". "To the families and friends of the victims, and to the injured, God bless you all!" "Please be careful tomorrow, we could see downed trees, localized flooding and even the chance of a brief tornado spin up".

"We've got about 150 first responders out there", Smith told The Associated Press by phone. Some patients had been sent to other hospitals, it added.

A tornado roaring across southeast Alabama killed at least 14 people and injured several others Sunday as severe storms destroyed mobile homes, snapped trees and scattered destruction and weather warnings into Georgia, Florida and SC.

Parts of the South are expected to stay under a tornado watch until 11 p.m. eastern time Sunday.

Televised broadcast news footage showed smashed buildings with rooftops blown away, cars overturned and debris everywhere.

Photos posted on social media from a highway near Smiths Station, about 20 miles (32 km) east of Beauregard, showed a large bar called the Buck Wild Saloon with its roof torn off and missing most of a wall after the storm swept through.

The full scope of the damage is still unknown as severe weather lingers across the region.

The team will help recover and identify human remains at the disaster site, especially in areas where the local coroner was lacking resources, said Roy A. Goodson, president of the Alabama Funeral Directors and Morticians Association. Power appeared out to homes and businesses around the community in southeast Alabama. But emergency crews and others said they would be out through the night coping with the devastation left behind.

Lee County Schools will be closed Monday due to the storms.

Meredith Wyatt, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Birmingham, Ala., said the strong line of storms moved quickly across the area on Sunday afternoon.

The storms have left 8,270 SC power customers in the dark as of 7:30 p.m., the S.C. Emergency Management Division posted on Twitter.

Much of Lexington County and Columbia were placed under a tornado warning Sunday night by the National Weather Service.
