A Severe T'Storm Watch has been issued for our eastern Alabama counties through 11AM CT.

The latest severe weather forecast from the National Weather Service indicates the line of storms should reach Dothan after 1 p.m. "It hit the trailer, flipped it and tore its side off".

Nearly the same areas as today's severe weather risk could have severe weather again Wednesday. Higgins said the tornado touched down soon after the warning was issued.

Higgins said 38-year-old Francine Gotch and 3-year-old Neville Alexander were pronounced dead at the scene.

SC officials say a mobile home flipped during severe storms that swept through the South, killing a person.

The Weather Channel reported that customers in Louisiana and MS were most severely affected by the outages, with Alabama, Georgia and Texas also signaling issues with power supply. Tornadoes, damaging winds and large hail are all possible. Up to 6 inches of rain fell in some areas.

The National Weather Service is forecasting stormy weather in Alabama in the upcoming week.

A marginal risk of severe storms is over the Tennessee Valley, while an enhanced risk is over Southern Alabama.

Fire officials in the Texas village of Point Venture said several people witnessed an apparent funnel cloud there Sunday morning.

Georgia Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Lisa Rodriguez-Presley said the agency had gotten reports of trees down and structural damage to a fire station in Carrollton, about 50 miles west of Atlanta.

The woman called 911 as her auto went down, but rescuers were unable to reach her in time in the heavily wooded area, he said.

He said authorities got a call from a woman saying her auto was being swept into the water.

There also was flooding and wind damage in central MS, with water rescues in the Vicksburg area, Lamb said.

A huge storm system moving up from the southwest will bring showers and thunderstorms through much of the day to Athens and northeast Georgia, according to the National Weather Service.

A storm system rumbling eastward through Texas toward the lower Mississippi Valley could pelt the region with large hail and cause flash-flooding and spawn tornadoes.

NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has placed a large part of the state under the risk of severe weather starting tonight, and upped the risk for Wednesday. The greatest tornado risk is centered over southern Alabama.
