Flooding caused by Tropical Storm Danny's torrential rain forced scores of people to evacuate Sunday as rushing water washed out roads and poured through homes. The storm, downgraded to a tropical depression as it weakened and drifted into the Florida Panhandle, left thousands without power, boats wrecked and homes damaged in southern Alabama. One death was blamed on the storm.

A series of dangerous thunderstorms pelted the Southeast on Monday, sending rescue crews to a central Alabama mobile home park where hundreds of residents were evacuated from flood waters after a creek overran it banks, emergency officials said. The storms spread overnight from Mississippi into Alabama and Georgia, triggering flash floods, causing power outages and shutting down roads. Every firefighter in the Pelham Fire Department was out in the field trying to remove residents from hundreds of flooded mobile homes at Green Park South, said Robin Wilkinson, administrative assistant with the department.

Storm-choked rivers surged further beyond their banks in southern Alabama, Georgia and the Florida Panhandle, driving families from their homes to join thousands who have fled from flooding that has led to at least 13 deaths throughout the South. Military police officers guarded against looters in flood-ravaged southern Alabama, where the town of Elba remained a muddy hole Monday, two days after an earthen levee ruptured along the Pea River.
