A band of fast-moving storms brought reports of more than one hundred possible tornadoes across the South on Saturday, toppling trees, snapping power lines and bringing the two-day death toll to 17.
Emergency crews in Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama worked to assess the damage as the storm system moved north into the Carolinas and southern Virginia, according to the National Weather Service.
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley declared a state of emergency Friday after reports of tornado touchdowns in at least six counties.
Three people were also killed in Autauga County after fallen trees crashed into mobile homes in the area, police said.
Some of the death toll reads as follows:
Three deaths in Washington County were reported, said Yasamie August, spokeswoman for the Alabama Emergency Management Agency.
Two other deaths were previously reported in Oklahoma and seven in Arkansas.
In Greene County, Mississippi, one death and six injuries were reported, officials said.
And if that wasn’t bad enough…
Rescue crews found a 34-year-old woman in bed with her 7-year-old, whom she had apparently come to comfort during the overnight storm, said Little Rock Fire Department Capt. Randy Davenport.
The two were killed when a giant oak tree fell on the home, Davenport said.
An 18-month-old child in another bedroom survived.

Justin Bieber may be out of school and on the road, but he still understands the importance of education.
The teen heartthrob has teamed up with Pencils of Promise (PoP) and posted a video (as first seen on Us magazine) to challenge his fans and society to help give back to education in a campaign called Schools4All. Bieber and nonprofit founder Adam Braun would like to see a slew of people make their own personal fundraising pages to raise money among their community so that Pencils of Promise can continue to build schools and educate others.
“There are more than 75 million children without access to education, and together we can do something about it,” the website reads. “Through our new Schools4All campaign, we’re asking you to join the PoP movement that empowers lives around the world by building schools for children in need. It is by bringing together communities at home, that we can collectively impact communities abroad.”
The campaign runs from April 15th through June 30th, and one lucky participant will get a personal visit from Bieber himself at the school of their choice.
