JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Early reports of tornado damage overnight in Mississippi and Alabama suggest twisters wrecked numerous homes, destroyed a fire station and ripped the roof off an apartment complex.

More than 50,000 people are without power, and forecasters said Wednesday that the “threat for supercells capable of all severe weather hazards” continues in southern Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and the Florida panhandle.

Authorities have opened a shelter for storm victims north of Montgomery, Alabama, where two people were killed as a tree fell on their home.

Meanwhile, heavy snow has snarled traffic in some parts of the Upper Midwest.

In Eutaw, 15 families were displaced after an apartment complex’s roof blew off in the storms.
