Earlier, over the weekend, the National Weather Service said a warm front expected to lift northward across southeast Georgia and South Carolina Monday morning could produce thunderstorms Monday afternoon through Monday night. With electrical transformers exploding and trees crashing down all around, Brasher, 60, said it felt like wind "picked up and shook the whole house". "It blew the paint off my house", he said. You should think ahead of time what you will do and where you will go if a warning is issued. "Strong to severe thunderstorms will become more likely".

Several shelters opened, schools were closed, trees and power lines were down, and Jacksonville State advised people to avoid traveling near campus Tuesday morning, the AP reported. The biggest threat with these storms were damaging winds, hail, and some isolated tornadoes.

Much of north Florida and the entire Georgia and SC coasts would be at an "enhanced" risk for severe storms Tuesday, which could include damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes, the National Storm Prediction Center.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop west of I-95 before 2 p.m. - quickly becoming strong to severe and moving northeastward between 30 and 50 miles per hour.

Severe damage was done to structures in Ardmore, Ala., where the storm collapsed roofs and entire homes. After several tornadoes touched down on Monday, much of Florida and some of Georgia are now under tornado watch-with wind advisories spanning as far as eastern Texas. The Haralson County School District said schools would be closed Tuesday due to storm damage "throughout our community". Alabama Power Co. said more than 9,000 homes and businesses were without electricity, the AP reported.

"There has been significant damage tonight in parts of Alabama", Gov. Kay Ivey said in a statement.

As the East Coast prepared for a fourth nor'easter to hit the region in March, the northern and eastern parts of Alabama were besieged by a series of storms that included devastating tornadoes and baseball-sized hailed.

Forecasters say it would be a rough day for cleaning up. Highs are predicted in the lower 50s, and wind gusts as strong as 30 miles per hour are likely, along with rain. Dense fog shrouded some areas Tuesday morning.
