Thousands remain without electrical power from storms that ravaged parts of the South and Midwest, causing 11 deaths.

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

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey praised the state's first responders Sunday in a statement expressing grief over the loss of life.

A tornado with 135 mph winds hit northwest Louisiana, where authorities say three people died, including a man crushed to death in his bed when a tree fell on his home.
