Alabama tornadoes kill many, as storms strike Southeast

At least 23 people were killed and several others injured in Alabama, as twisters struck across the Southeast Sunday.

The big picture: Tornadoes were also reported in Georgia and Florida, but the hardest-hit area was in Beauregard in Lee County, Alabama, AP reports. The county's sheriff, Jay Jones, said there would be an organized search Monday morning for people still missing, according to WSFA. The storms were part of a larger weather system bringing heavy snow to New York and Boston overnight.
