Tornadoes kill at least 18 in Alabama

The StarTribune.com reports tornadoes in Alabama have killed at least 13 people, including eight high school students who were trapped under a collasped roof.

State Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Yasamie Richardson said eight fatalities "are in relation to the high school but whether they are all students or some students and teachers we're not sure."

Reuters.com is reporting there are at least 14 deaths that are recorded instead of the orginal 13.

"Enterprise has suffered major and widespread damage," said Alabama Gov. Bob Riley, who sent 100 National Guard troops to Enterprise and put additional troops on alert.

Newsday.com reports the fatalities have reached 18 and there are possibly more to the count.
