BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Four more storm-related deaths have been reported in Mississippi, increasing the toll from the most recent wave of severe weather in the South to 15.
Mississippi is the scene of eight deaths on Wednesday, including a father struck by a tree while protecting his daughter at a Mississippi campsite. Three of the other deaths also involved fallen trees.
In the late afternoon, Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said three more people had died in storms in Kemper County and another in Marshall County, but didn't offer further details.
Five people have also been killed in storms in Alabama, and one each in Arkansas and Tennessee since Tuesday night.
That's in addition to 11 people who died in a wave of storms earlier in the week.
