BIRMINGHAM, Ala - Tornadoes and storms killed 45 people in Alabama on Wednesday as severe weather lashed the southeastern United States, bringing down power lines, destroying buildings and triggering flooding.

The storms were part of a series that have struck half a dozen southern states over the last few days, killing at least 66 people.

"State (emergency officials) can confirm 45 storm-related deaths today in Alabama," said Yasamie August, spokeswoman for the Alabama Emergency Management Agency.

Fifteen people were killed in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, she told Reuters.
