2 killed by damage from north Alabama storms

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say two people in northern Alabama have been killed in separate accidents caused by heavy storms.

Marshall County Sheriff's spokesman Heath Thomas tells The Huntsville Times a woman was killed and her husband seriously injured when the storms destroyed their mobile home near Guntersville late Sunday. Their identities have not been released.

It was not yet known whether the home was destroyed by a possible tornado or the extremely high winds that the storms produced across much of Mississippi, Alabama and parts of Georgia.

In Morgan County, The Decatur Daily reports that a tree fell on
a mobile home and killed a man inside.
