At Least 3 Killed as Powerful Storms Barrel Through Deep South

WATCH Severe Storms Possible Late Tonight

Mobley had made a few cuts on the tree and backed away when the trunk shifted before he could move, Deputy Coroner Ricky Alford said.

National Weather Service forecasters said they believe multiple tornadoes hit the southern half of MS on Thursday as a storm system moves east.

The national Storm Prediction Center said 9.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were at a moderate risk of severe weather.

Kenderick Magee, 24, was also killed while driving in the storm, WLBT-TV reported.

Motorists are being urged to avoid part of a major interstate that runs through SC after a line of storms downed trees and left the roadway scattered with debris.

There were 31 reported tornadoes in the South - from Texas to Virginia - since Wednesday, including 13 on Friday.

South Florida should prepare for possible severe weather heading into the holiday weekend.

Paris' Notre-Dame Cathedral Burning
President Donald Trump said the cathedral "might be greater than nearly any museum in the world and it's burning, very badly". Sixteen statues had been removed last week as part of the renovation and were therefore spared from the fire, the AP reports .

A lake wind advisory is already in effect, and tornado watches and warnings are possible.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, thousands from Florida to North Carolina to Pennsylvania were left without power.

People huddled in hallways, stairways and basements across southwest MS and the Jackson metropolitan area for much of Thursday afternoon, as tornado sirens wailed, winds howled and rains poured.

After days of sunny skies in North Carolina, severe weather is expected Friday, according to the National Weather Service. A second unidentified driver was killed the same day when his vehicle hit a tree in in Neshoba County, according to the affiliate.

Local news outlets report a school bus carrying preschoolers was briefly trapped between downed trees on a road near Utica.

In neighboring Alabama, one person died after a tree fell on a home, emergency management director Patrice Kurzejeski told CNN.

At least four people, including an 8-year-old girl, have died as severe thunderstorms continue to march across the South and then veer north, spawning tornadoes, knocking down power lines and causing roads to flood. Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant declared a state of emergency - the second one he has declared in less than a week due to tornadoes.
