ABOVE VIDEO: Tornado kills at least 11, injures 23

(FOX NEWS) – At least 11 people are dead and 23 people injured after severe weather struck southern Georgia early Sunday, a day after 4 people were killed when a tornado spawned by the same system touched down in Mississippi. 

Catherine Howden of the Georgia Emergency Management Agency told the Associated Press that the deaths occurred in Cook, Brooks and Berrien counties near the Florida-Georgia line.

Howden said the deaths were related to severe weather, but could not specify whether tornadoes were the cause.

Cook County Coroner Tim Purvis said an apparent tornado “leveled” numerous mobile homes before dawn Sunday in the park near Adel, where at least 5 were confirmed dead. He said emergency responders were still searching for survivors hours later.

Purvis estimated the park has about 40 mobile homes total and roughly half of them were destroyed.
