Tornado leaves at least 23 dead in Alabama

Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones tells “Good Morning America” about the search and rescue operation underway after a slew of tornadoes ripped through the region.


At least 23 people were killed in southeastern Alabama when a slew of tornadoes ripped through the area Sunday, leaving behind “catastrophic” damage, said Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones.

The death toll in rural Lee County likely will rise as rescue crews sift through the debris Monday morning. So far, all of those killed lived in roughly a one-square-mile area of the town of Beauregard, a community of roughly 9,000, Jones said.
