The death toll from severe storms that moved across the South overnight has risen to five.
An official in Tennessee says two people have been killed and at least nine others injured in severe weather that hit the state overnight.
Tennessee Emergency Management Agency spokesman Dean Flener says a husband and wife died and two others were injured in Polk County. He said at least seven injuries were reported in nearby McMinn County. He didn't have further details on what happened.
Flener says suspected tornadic activity was reported in six counties, all in the southeastern corner of Tennessee.
Across the state line, three people were killed in northeastern Alabama when a suspected tornado hit a mobile home in Jackson County.
