Death toll rises to 2 as storms move across the Deep South

Storms moving through the Deep South have left damage in southeastern Alabama on the anniversary of a deadly tornado outbreak.

Jeanna Barnes of the Pike County Emergency Management Agency in Alabama said Thursday a man was trapped in his home by a fallen tree.

No injuries are being reported but the National Weather Service issued at least a half-dozen warnings. Central Georgia is under a tornado watch.

The severe weather came on the anniversary of the day dozens of twisters plowed across the Southeast on April 27, 2011, killing more than 250 people in Alabama.

North Carolina news outlets say a woman died after a car on N.C. 58 was carried away by high water from Contentnea Creek about 8 p.m. Wednesday in Greene County near Stantonsburg. It's the second apparent storm-related death in the state.
