Rescue crews are still searching for victims of the tornado that killed 23 people and left 90 more injured in Lee County, Ala., on Sunday. With dozens of people still missing, the nearly mile-wide storm was the deadliest U.S. tornado in almost six years. At least three children were among the victims.
A second storm may have hit near the community of Beauregard, Ala., the National Weather Service said, but most of the damage is attributed to the powerful EF4 twister with 170 mph winds and a path about 24 miles long.
