A long line of storms stretching from the deep South to upstate New York continued to roll across the nation on Wednesday, with reports of two fatalities in separate tornadoes.
It's the traditional dead season for tornadoes, but northern Georgia was raked by at least one, knocking down trees, damaging homes and leaving cars upturned in a McDonald's parking lot in Adairsville, according to the National Weather Service.
AccuWeather, citing Bartow County Emergency Management officials, reported one killed in the Adairsville tornado; that death could not immediately be confirmed.
Other high-wind damage was reported from Alabama to Pennsylvania, with gusts nearing 70 mph. A county emergency manager in McCreary County, Ky., reported to the National Weather Service that "almost all county roads have been blocked because of downed trees." In Slate Valley, Ky., a fallen tree limb hit a school bus.
