2 p.m. A Tornado Warning has been issued for parts of southern Lee County.

Earlier in the afternoon, the Lee County EMA said much of the damage was near Beauregard, and there were two confirmed fatalities in that area. He told reporters that children were among the dead and that some people are still believed missing and that a search and rescue operation was continuing.

Photos on social media from a highway near Smiths Station, about 20 miles (32 km) east of Beauregard, showed a large bar called the Buck Wild Saloon with its roof torn off and missing most of a wall after the storm swept through. Power appeared out to homes and businesses around the community in southeast Alabama.

Spokeswoman for the Lee County Emergency Management Agency Rita Smith, said: "We've got about 150 first responders out there". Beauregard is a community about 60 miles (95 kilometres) east of Montgomery, Alabama's capital city. "We're going to be here all night". He did not immediately return phone messages from The Associated Press.

The Lee County Emergency Management Agency said the fatalities were near Beauregard, Alabama, WFSA reported. But emergency crews and others said they would be out through the night coping with the devastation left behind.

Weather officials said an outbreak of tornadoes occurred on Sunday afternoon across a wide area of the south-east after a severe weather system crossed the region towards the Atlantic seaboard.
