A total of three killed as tornadoes slam the Deep South, Monday

"It was total chaos", Lawrence County Coroner in Alabama told reporters.

"All of the severe thunderstorm threats will continue for a time into the evening hours, becoming even more unsafe in the dark", AccuWeather meteorologist Brandon Buckingham said.

Officials feared others could be hurt in the area since crews were still trying to reach hard-hit areas where downed trees and power lines blocked roads, he said.

The Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office reported that one person was killed as a result of the storm in an area east of Rosepine.

The storms destroyed buildings, toppled trees and downed power lines in several Louisiana communities before causing additional damage in MS, including central and eastern parts of the state.

Meteorologist Donald Jones of the National Weather Service office in Lake Charles said it appeared the twister that hit in Alexandria also struck the town of DeRidder on a path that was an "absolutely ridiculous" at 63 miles (101 kilometers) long.

In Alabama, officials said the two people killed were a husband and wife.

A seven-year-old boy was found injured near the couple and taken to the hospital, Garrett said.

'A confirmed large and destructive tornado was observed near Alexandria International Airport, moving northeast at 25 miles per hour.

Multiple houses were damaged or destroyed in Amite County, Mississippi, located on the southern border of Louisiana, Grant McCurley, the county's director of the emergency management said in an email.

A Baptist church in Guntown, Mississippi, was reported to have been destroyed.

The weather service in Birmingham said it will send out two survey teams to look at damage.

At least one person is dead from unsafe storms sweeping across the South. "Right now we're having trouble just getting to places because of tress that are down", Turner said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries there, but the weather service said the threat of severe weather would continue into the night as a cold front mixed with warmer air.

Storm damage was also reported in Choctaw County in southwest Alabama where a tornado-warned storm moved through Monday night.
