BBC – Severe weather has killed at least 18 people in the US South and injured many more, emergency officials say.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has declared a state of emergency in seven counties in the state, where 14 people have died.

Four people were killed by tornadoes in Mississippi on Saturday.
A “tornado risk” continued for Southern Florida, the National Weather Service said, as it warned of damaging winds and hail.

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency said in a news release that the 14 victims were in the southern Cook, Brooks, Dougherty and Berrien counties.

Most of the deaths occurred in Cook County, when a mobile home park was apparently struck by a tornado.
