BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama official says three adult family members have died when a tornado hit a home in central Alabama.
Autauga County Chief Deputy Sheriff Joe Sedinger tells The Associated Press the three were killed late Friday night in the Boone's Chapel community of the county, about 24 miles north of Montgomery.
Combined with one death previously reported in Alabama and other fatalities in Arkansas and Oklahoma, the death toll has risen to 13 in the nation's deadliest storm of the season.
