One woman was killed in a shopping centre and another in a nearby trailer home. Two more storm-related fatalities were confirmed in Jones county to the north-east, and both victims there were believed to have died in their homes. Numerous people were known to have been hurt in both counties, some seriously.

Property damage in Marion county are “massive” including homes and businesses, as well as vehicles flipped over by the storm, which struck at about 2.30pm local time. Damage also was reported in Jones county which was struck about an hour later.

The twisters were spawned by thunderstorms in the region, and that severe weather was moving into north-western Alabama, followed by a wave of heavy showers that were expected to dump four or five inches (100-150mm) of rain in some areas.
