Deadly night in the south

At least five people have been killed as severe storms moved across the Southeast, bringing heavy rain and strong winds.

A dozen tornadoes have been confirmed, lightning sparked several houses fires and and high winds knocked out power to more than 80,000 people in two states. Downed trees and damaged buildings were reported in at least 28 counties in Mississippi, 15 parishes in Louisiana and 15 counties in Texas, according to the Associated Press.

Four people died in a mobile home on Monday evening in Rehobeth, Alabama, when a tree crashed through it. Another man died in Florida while trying to evacuate his flooded home. 

State emergency officials reported no injuries or deaths in Louisiana and Mississippi, but a trip to Walmart was memorable for some shoppers in Marksville, Louisiana, as severe weather blew out skylights in the store, sending water and glass cascading onto shoppers.
