Alabama Governor Bob Riley will tour the areas damaged from the severe weather that hit this weekend.

Riley will view the damage first from a helicopter, then land in the Albertville area and drive around for a closer look.

A tornado a touched down in Albertville and Geraldine on Saturday night and more than three dozen people were injured.

Two people died from the severe weather after a woman heading to a storm shelter slipped and fell, and a car crashed into a fallen tree.

A total of 10 deaths are reported in neighboring Mississippi, where Gov. Haley Barbour called damage from a twister "enormous."

Rescuers went through debris yesterday looking for more survivors.
