Cleanup begins after southern storms kill five

ROSALIE, AL (AP) – Meteorologists say at least two tornadoes struck Alabama as a severe storm system crossed the state.

Experts spread out Wednesday to survey the damage, seeking to determine whether other twisters touched down during the night.

The weather service office in Huntsville in northern Alabama has crews assessing damage from at least four possible twisters, including one blamed for three deaths in the northeast Alabama community of Rosalie.

Meanwhile, emergency officials say two people died and more than two dozen others were injured during a severe weather outbreak in Tennessee, a state already reeling from deadly wildfires.

The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency says up to 23 people were injured in McMinn County alone in the hard-hit southeastern portion of the state
