Tornadoes rip through the southeast, decimating homes and businesses
On the afternoon and well into the evening of Sunday, March 3, several tornadoes roared through rural areas of Georgia, Alabama, Florida and South Carolina. More than 10,000 homes and businesses were destroyed and many are still without power. The storm system brought colder air with it, and those without power will need to seek accommodations overnight as temperatures drop into the 20s. First responders are continuing to search for survivors among the wreckage.
Flying debris and downed trees posed the greatest threat. The deadliest of the twisters was an EF3, measuring a half-mile wide as it devastated parts of Eastern Alabama. According to NOAA, an EF3 causes severe damage to large buildings and can blow away structures built upon weak foundations.
