15 Dead as Tornado Outbreak Continues in Southeastern US

So far Sunday afternoon- 11 people have died in Georgia due to tornadoes.

In fact- most of the Southeast is under a "high risk" for severe storms and damaging- long-track twisters.

Four died yesterday in Mississippi after a tornado- rated EF-3- struck Hattiesburg and Petal MS several hours before dawn.

The risk will continue throughout the rest of today- and persons living in the southeastern US are advised to keep close tabs on their local weather.

Around 2:30 pm- a large damaging tornado tore through the southern parts of Albany GA..

That tornado (shown on a NWS base velocity radar image)- continues on the ground northeast of Albany- moving NE at around 50 mph..

Damage has been reported- but no word yet of injuries or possible fatalities.
