  • Tornadoes in Texas and related storms in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee claimed 25 lives since Wednesday.

    At many as 11 people died when tornadoes touched down in Garland, Texas.

    Ari Sarsalari is a meteorologist for The Weather Channel. She says the line of storms responsible for the tornadoes in Texas isn’t over.

    “It’s going to get a lot worse,” she said.

    One of the tornadoes in Texas was at least an EF-3.

    Storms rolled into Alabama on Sunday, causing serious flooding.

    Governor Robert Bentley declared a state of emergency so people could deal with the flooding just before Christmas Day tornados uprooted countless trees and even tore rooftops off homes. Like the tornadoes in Texas, one touched down in Alabama’s most populated city–Birmingham–but there were no fatalities there.

    Severe storms were predicted for Mississippi well into Sunday night.

    “Tornadoes are possible and residents are asked to remain weather aware,” the EMA said.

    Weather officials have said he tornadoes in Texas and across the south, as well as the line of strong storms, are likely caused by the unseasonably warm air. That warm air is expected to continue throughout the next few days, meaning the frightening line of bad weather likely isn’t over yet.
