Seven family members among 23 killed

The youngest victim was 6, the oldest 89.

Lee County Coroner Bill Harris says other coroners and funeral homes from around the state are pitching in to help prepare the victims for funerals.

The search for victims in and around the devastated rural community of Beauregard continued on Tuesday, with crews using heavy equipment to lift large chunks of wreckage. "He was my wedding gift", said Dean of her husband whom she married three years ago. "So we were thinking the worst, that she could be dead".

Cousins Johnathan Marquez Bowen, 9, and Mykala Waldon, 8, were also killed in the tornado. He'd send me flowers to work just to let me know he loved me.

The boy's father and brother both survived.

"I am still in shock", she said.

The siblings found the home reduced to its foundation.

A cousin who was in the same house as those killed sustained injuries and is now hospitalized, Griffin said.

"The situation will now move, as it should, to a recovery", Jones said. Dean was in their mobile home, texting a friend to beware the storm approaching the Alabama-Georgia line. He was known as "Roaddog" for his love of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

"All we could do is just hold on for life and pray", said Jonathan Clardy, who huddled with his family inside their Beauregard trailer as the tornado ripped the roof off.

"I got another call from another company that will do the same thing".

Taylor loved her 10-month-old brother nearly as much as she loved animals, especially horses, said Stan Cox, head of the Lee-Scott Academy, a private Christian school in Auburn, Ala., where Taylor attended.

How Many People Were Killed?

Most have been released from the hospital.

At least 14 people have died and many more are still missing after two tornados tore through Alabama Sunday, local authorities said.

"Unfortunately our toll, as far as fatalities, does stand at 23", Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said.

On Monday, Ivey signed an expedited major disaster declaration request asking Trump to approve their immediate assistance.

Church chaplain Ike Mathews is checking on emergency workers and members of his congregation as he walks a road lined with broken trees and pieces of homes.

"Yesterday I talked to some team members who had found bodies. We can not emphasize enough that we want them to communicate and let us know what they need", Carson said. They invest in their homes, and they have a sense of legacy. "It's something to leave their kids and grandkids", he said. Southeast of Auburn is the small, unincorporated town of Beauregard, which was home to a ravaging tornado that claimed that lives of at least 23 people.

The storm system-which stretched from Louisiana, across Mississippi, Alabama, the Florida panhandle, Georgia and into South Carolina-spawned several tornados.

"She didn't miss a beat", Cox said.
