The National Weather Service gauge at Harry P. Williams Memorial Airport near Patterson recorded south and southeast winds of 18-25 miles per hour from about midnight Friday until about 7 a.m. Saturday, with gusts of up to 36 miles per hour. More than 350,000 homes and businesses were without power in 10 states - Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Texas and West Virginia - by 7 p.m. ET, according to the online project PowerOutage.us.

The National Weather Service says it was a tornado packing winds of at leas 134 miles per hour (215 kph ) that hit Alabama's Pickens County on Saturday, killing three.

Parts of southwest IN and western Kentucky were under a flash flood watch until Saturday evening.

In Alabama, three people were confirmed dead near Carrollton in Pickens County, the National Weather Service in Birmingham said on Twitter. "Heavy rainfall along the OH and Wabash rivers will cause water levels to rise to minor flood stage around mid-week". Ongoing winter weather, flood, and lakeshore flooding advisories are in effect for the city and the greater northwestern IL region.

Also in St. Mary, Vitalant said the holidays and the severe weather alert in the Morgan City area caused the cancellation of blood drives and the adjustment of hours for the donation center.
