ADAIRSVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Powerful winds, rain and hail are battering parts of the South, killing at least one person.
The large storm system damaged homes, overturned cars on an interstate and knocked out electricity to thousands.
At least one tornado was confirmed and several more suspected, and conditions remained ripe for more. Since Tuesday, the system had caused damage across a swath from Missouri to Georgia.
Police say high winds toppled a tree onto a shed in Nashville, Tenn., where a man had taken shelter, killing him. In Adairsville, Ga., northwest of Atlanta, officials reported a possible tornado. At least 10 cars were overturned on Interstate 75. The Bartow County fire chief says emergency crews are trying to get to people reported trapped in homes and buildings.
