At least 23 dead in Alabama tornado

Alabama residents and rescue workers on Monday dug through the remnants of homes destroyed by a series of tornadoes that killed at least 23 people, including at least three children.

The tornadoes ripped through Lee County on Sunday with winds of up to 170 miles per hour.

At least two tornadoes struck an area of eastern Alabama near the Georgia border in the space of a few hours on Sunday afternoon, with some of the worst damage in the tiny community of Beauregard, according to the National Weather Service.

Lee County Coroner Bill Harris confirmed on Tuesday that the 23 victims had been identified and their bodies taken to funeral homes.

More than 50 people were reported injured, authorities said, making the tornadoes the deadliest since the one that tore through Moore, Oklahoma, in 2013, killing 24 people.
