The severe weather in Georgia continued to take a toll and that it was not expected to stop until late Sunday night. The state’s governor, Nathan Deal, declared a state of emergency on Sunday for seven south-central Georgia counties: Atkinson, Berrien, Brooks, Colquitt, Cook, Lowndes and Thomas. “These storms have devastated communities and homes in South Central Georgia, and the state is making all resources available to the impacted areas,” Mr. Deal said in a statement. Mississippi’s emergency agency said that a tornado had caused extensive damage in the southern part of the state. Gov. Phil Bryant called for a state of emergency as power lines and debris littered Mississippi’s roads. The weather also caused damage in parts of Alabama, Louisiana and Texas.
