Death Toll Rises to 19 in Stormy Southeast


The Southeast has seen 19 deaths in the last few days from thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flooding, with no signs that the rain has finished falling.

Northern Georgia only recently saw its share of the weather system, as it moved into Atlanta today, flooding streets and delaying flights at the busy air hub, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.


As previously reported, three people yesterday were killed in Mississippi from two tornadoes there, while a fourth was killed in a rain-related car accident.

Kentucky saw three death as well from rain related incidents, but no state has been as hard hit as Tennessee, with at least 12 reported dead, six of which were reported by city officials in the Nashville area alone.

The National Weather Service reports that flooding is expected to continue in the area, which has seen 20 inches of rain in the last 48 hours.
