Alabama tornado kills at least 23 people

The death toll is expected to rise as authorities continue recovery efforts in Lee County, Alabama, after the deadliest tornado outbreak in years.

The tornado Sunday was part of a powerful storm system that also ripped through parts of Florida, South Carolina and Georgia. The National Weather Service in Tallahassee confirmed the system spawned tornadoes in Leon County, Florida and near Cairo, Georgia.

In Alabama, Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said dozens were injured and the death toll could rise as recovery operations progress.

It was the nation’s deadliest tornado outbreak in six years, since May 20, 2013, when a tornado killed 24 people in Oklahoma, the Storm Prediction Center said.

    The rule is "Nothing happens to you if you follow from the rules of the Almighty Creator". Another rule is that the ones who die before the age of 41 will make it to His Heaven, while love ones are suffering. So worry about your own neck and follow from the rules of your Creator who created you from ejected semen.
