Transcript for Multiple tornadoes reported in South
We turn to the deadly weather outbreak hitting the south. Multiple tornadoes reported. This one spotted east of Jackson, Mississippi. No major damage or injuries reported there, but at least one person died when an ef-3 touched down in palmetto, Louisiana. Much of the region feeling the impact of the storms, and here's ABC's senior meteorologist rob Marciano. Reporter: Tonight, the deadly severe weather outbreak striking the south. Multiple reported tornadoes overnight. This one east of Jackson, Mississippi. In St. Landry parish, la, north of Lafayette, a strong tornado with winds of at least 130 miles per hour striking in the middle of the night. The glass was coming from the window, from the door, and we could hear as everything was starting to crumble. Reporter: Eva council and her husband making it into their bathtub just in time. Tragically, one person killed and several taken to the hospital. More than a dozen homes damaged. In Shreveport, a second death. A man killed when a tree fell on his home. And a line of severe storms sweeping across parts of the gulf coast. This massive water spout moving across the beach in Panama City, Florida. Look at that! Reporter: The roof of this convenience store ripped off. Outside Pensacola, powerful wind gusts sending a tree crashing into this home, trapping a woman first responders rushing her to the hospital. Let's get to rob Marciano. Rob, take us through where the system is heading next. Reporter: Well, this line that's going through the gulf coast, especially potent. We had softball size hail in Orange beach, Alabama. That's very rare. 85-mile-per-hour wind gusts in Walton Beach. A lot of damage. It's going through Tampa, Atlanta. It will weaken some, but the same areas tomorrow as the front stalls will be up for more in the ways of damaging winds and hail. Tampa, ft. Myers, Jupiter, and up towards the space coast. Overall system pushes to the north and east and we'll see rain through the I-95 quarter and New York, upstate New York. And that low sits over Chicago for a second day of very slow moving systems, so folks in the midwest getting two days of rain. Whit? We'll be watching for that, rob. Thank you.
