GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say two people in northern Alabama have been killed in separate incidents caused by heavy storms.
Marshall County Sheriff's spokesman Heath Thomas tells The Huntsville Times a woman was killed and her husband seriously injured when the storms destroyed their mobile home near Guntersville late Sunday.
It was not yet known whether the home was destroyed by a possible tornado or the extremely high winds that the storms produced across much of Mississippi, Alabama and parts of Georgia.
In Morgan County, The Decatur Daily reports that a tree fell on a mobile home and killed a man inside.
Heavy storms also knocked down trees and damaged homes in western Georgia.
Tornado watches and warnings were issued for much of Mississippi, Alabama and northern Georgia.
