SHUQUALAK, Miss. (AP) — A powerful spring storm that brought tornadoes, hail and high winds to the Deep South after socking the Midwest is making its way toward the Carolinas early Friday, with three deaths blamed on the rough weather and thousands of people without power.


The storm marched from Louisiana to Georgia on Thursday, causing major damage to parts of Mississippi, where a twister was spotted and one person was killed. Tennessee authorities late Thursday declared a state of emergency after a tornado was reported in Monroe County, in the southeastern part of that state.

While tornado watches for the Atlanta area had been lifted by early Friday, they remained in effect in for parts of the Carolinas.
