YAZOO CITY, Miss. (AP) — Forecasters say much of the South could see more severe weather Tuesday. Tornadoes struck parts of the region Sunday night and Monday, causing heavy damage in Mississippi and flipping trucks on a Texas interstate. The national Storm Prediction Center says the worst weather could hit parts of Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. That zone is home to more than 11 million people. One death was reported Tuesday in Tennessee when a tree fell on a mobile home. Besides tornadoes, threats include wind gusts of up to 70 mph and hail the size of golf balls. Authorities have recorded two weather-related deaths, both in Georgia.
