ADAIRSVILLE, Ga. (AP) - At least two people are dead after a massive storm ripped through the Southeast.
The storm spawned tornadoes and dangerous winds that overturned cars on Interstate 75 in Georgia. Homes and businesses have been demolished.
Video from an Atlanta's WSB-TV shows an enormous funnel cloud bearing down on Adairsville, about 60 miles northwest of Atlanta. The system flattened homes and wiped out parts of a manufacturing plant.
Debris in one Adairsville yard included a bathtub, table and lumber scattered in the grass next to what appeared to be a roof. Sheets of metal dangled from a large tree like ornaments.
State emergency management officials say one person has been killed and nine have been hospitalized for minor injuries.
Another death has been reported in Tennessee after an uprooted tree fell onto a storage shed where a man had taken shelter.
