Transcript for Severe Weather in the South Claims Three Lives
We turn to the deadly storms sweeping through the south, including flooding and powerful winds that have left a path of destruction. ABC's Steve osunsami has the story. There's a huge funnel cloud. Come here. Reporter: This morning, severe weather in the south, responsible for at least three deaths and miles of destruction. It looks like something from Vietnam came here and just blew the place up again. Reporter: Several dangerous storms swept east over parts of Tennessee, Arkansas and Georgia Thursday. In Tennessee, heavy flooding led to at least one death. Rescue teams still searching for 6-year-old autistic boy outside Nashville. The car he was in, swept away by floodwaters. We are in a rescue mode right now. We're all praying we find this little boy. Reporter: The other five people in the car, including three children, were able to get out alive. Right now, that's all we have, is each other. We're hoping to find him safe and sound. Reporter: And in Arkansas, strong winds lifted 15 to 20 cars off these train tracks and knocked this airplane at jonesboro airport. And winds so strong, they knocked this four-wheeler into this house. One teach Earp in BlackRock and a 74-year-old retired police officer in jonesboro, who died after a tree fell on his house. Everybody was crying and everything. Reporter: Neighbors say they could hear his screams. Here in Atlanta, there was an amazing sight as the storms passed through. The skies turned purple. And for much of the city, you could see a purple rainbow. People were running outside to get pictures of it. The storms ended at the exact moment that the sun was setting. That's a stunning picture. Thank you, Steve.
