Storms rake Deep South, 1 week after deadly tornado outbreak

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Severe storms raked a wide swath of the Deep South during the nighttime hours, and forecasters are warning of the possibility of tornadoes just a week after a deadly twister outbreak in the region.

The National Weather Service said Sunday that parts of several states are under a flash flood warning because of heavy rain and thunderstorms.

The agency says tornadoes are a possible threat for parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina.

The storm threat comes a week after Easter storms pounded the Deep South, killing dozens.
