Severe storms kill three in Alabama

WCBD-Lightning Strike

ROSALIE, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say three people have been killed as a line of storms and possible tornadoes moved across northern Alabama overnight.

Jackson County Chief Deputy Rocky Harnen tells The Associated Press the three killed were all in a mobile in Rosalie in northeast Alabama. Another person in the home was critically injured.

Harnen also said early Wednesday that there have been a number of other injuries and estimated that 16 to 20 structures in Jackson County have been destroyed.

National Weather Service meteorologist Lauren Nash says there have been multiple reports of possible tornadoes across several counties in northern Alabama and southern Tennessee.

These storms do provide some relief to the wildfires spreading in Southeast states.
