The National Weather Service announced just before 5 p.m. they would be sending out three survey teams on Monday to survey the damage from the Lee County tornado, as well as tornadoes in Autauga, Macon, and Barbour Counties. Closer to the devastation, emergency vehicles including ambulances, with lights flashes, were scattered all around.

Rita Smith, spokeswoman for the Lee County Emergency Management Agency, said about 150 first responders jumped in to efforts to search the debirs after the powerful storm hit.

Mr Jones described the damage as "catastrophic", saying one tornado cut a path of destruction quarter of a mile (0.4km) wide and several miles long.

Other people have been hospitalized, some with "very serious injuries", while the search is still continuing for more who are missing, he said. In other areas, such as Peach and Crawford, the storms left significant damage behind, including downed trees and damaged buildings.

Emergency officials in Talbot County, Georgia said six to eight people were injured by storms Sunday afternoon.
