3 dead as suspected twisters, other storms batter the South

Associated Press

Three people are confirmed dead and a dozen more injured as a powerful storm front packing suspected tornadoes smashed into buildings, downed trees and left a trail of destruction around the Deep South.

A dangerous mix of thunderstorms and suspected tornadoes raked the region Monday as a cold front collided with warmer air.

The sheriff's office in Vernon Parish, Louisiana, says the death there came from an apparent tornado strike on a home.

An official in north Alabama reported two deaths there after storms passed through that region.
