Storms Kill Two In Alabama

Emergency officials say two people have died in the Birmingham, Ala., area as storms pounded the South and Midwest, prompting tornado warnings in a handful of states.

Allen Kniphfer of the Jefferson County emergency management said early Monday the victims were found in two different areas of the county in central Alabama.

No more details of the deaths were immediately available.

Searchers in the Birmingham area were going from house-to-house early Monday in an effort to rescue people trapped in their homes.
