More than 10 dead after tornadoes hit Lee County, AL

Report Possible tornado touched down in the Upstate

Sixty people attending a youth bowling competition sheltered in the back of a bowling alley in Fort Benning, Georgia, as a deadly tornado hit the area on March 3.

Most of Middle Georgia is at risk for strong to severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfall Sunday afternoon and evening as a cold front enters the region, according to the National Weather Service.

Chief Byron Prather of the Opelika Fire Department told the television station WSFA 12 that several mobile homes and houses were destroyed in Lee County.

Weather officials say an outbreak of tornadoes occurred Sunday afternoon across a wide area of the Southeast as severe storms crossed the region. Beauregard is a community about 60 miles (95 kilometres) east of Montgomery, Alabama's capital city. But he said crews were still surveying damage in several counties in the southwestern part of the state.

Authorities said a tornado was confirmed by radar in the Florida Panhandle late Sunday afternoon.

The National Weather Service said it would send three survey teams to assess the damage caused by tornados across the state on Monday.

A number of tornado warnings are in place across the region as the severe weather also caused havoc in Georgia, Florida and SC.

The weather service said damaging wind gusts will be the main concern, but tornadoes and hail will also be possible today.

At least 14 people, some of them children, have died after a tornado swept through Lee County in Alabama. Pieces of metal debris and tree branches littered the roadside.

Reports said multiple homes were damaged in Dupree, Alabama, south of Dothan.

"We've still got people being pulled out of rubble", he told the Birmingham News newspaper.

"There's a squall line moving through the area", Harrigan told AP. In other areas, such as Peach and Crawford, the storms left significant damage behind, including downed trees and damaged buildings. "It's a favorable environment for tornados".

More severe storms are expected through the night closer to the First Coast area.

Tornado watches were in effect in parts of Alabama and in Georgia on Sunday evening.
