10 children among 12 dead in Alabama due to Tropical Depression Claudette


Tropical Depression Claudette has claimed 12 lives in Alabama as the storm swept across the southeastern U.S., causing flash flooding and spurring tornadoes that destroyed dozens of homes.

Ten people, including nine children, were killed in a 15-vehicle crash Saturday, according to Butler County Coroner Wayne Garlock, who said the vehicles likely hydroplaned on wet roads.

Eight of the dead were associated with the Alabama Sheriffs Youth Ranches. Multiple people were also injured.

Meanwhile, a 24-year-old man and a 3-year-old boy were killed when a tree fell on their house Saturday just outside Tuscaloosa. The deaths occurred as drenching rains pelted much of northern Alabama and Georgia.

A tropical storm warning was in effect Sunday in North Carolina.
