Rash of Tornadoes Kills 14 in Alabama, Missouri

At least a dozen people have died in Alabama as severe storms rake through parts of the South. Many of the deaths came when a tornado hit a high school in Enterprise, Ala.

The deadly storm system killed at least 13 people as it moved across Alabama; 8 of them were killed when an apparent tornado collapsed a high-school roof in Enterprise.

Alabama Gov. Bob Riley has ordered 100 National Guardsmen to Enterprise to aid in recovery efforts.


A tornado also killed a 7-year-old in Missouri.

The same storm system brought a blanket of snow to areas from Colorado to Michigan.

Michele talks with William Cooper, a city councilman in Enterprise.
