Deaths reported in Ala., Miss. from severe weather
Tuesday - 4/29/2014, 5:40am EDT
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- As many as nine deaths are being reported from severe storms blowing through the South, but the toll could rise.
In Mississippi, officials say at least seven people have been killed. State Director of Health Protection Jim Craig said Monday night that officials are working with coroners to confirm the total. Winston County Coroner Scott Gregory said six fatalities were reported in that county alone.
In north Alabama, Limestone County Emergency Director Rita White said the coroner's office had confirmed two deaths in a twister that caused extensive damage west of the city of Athens.
White says still more victims might be trapped in the wreckage of damaged buildings, but rescuers can't reach some areas yet. Separately, Limestone Commissioner Bill Latimer says he has reports from a worker of at least four deaths in the county.
